KIRKUS REVIEW

Thoroughly good entertainment to anyone who has in him a vestige of youthful enthusiasm for tales of castaways. A fantastic story of an English bar maid fast heading for established spinsterhood, of her sudden spurt of imagination and spirit of adventure and the acceptance of a post in Jamaica, and of the shipwreck which threw her into the sole companionship of a headstrong, magnetic lad of 11, with whom she had made friends on board boat. They shared a sense of adventure and an ability to see the fun in things which saved them many heartaches. Don't try this out on any customer without a sense of humor, nor yet on those who demand a bawdy streak in their humorous diet.
