AUNT JESSIE by Isabella Holt


Email this review


Pleasant narrative of clash of generations, ideas, standards, personalities, as with the breaking up of the Kendall marriage, Aunt Jessie, steadfastly Victorian, takes over the household of father and three children. These children's upbringing has geared them to demanding that they be shown that anything Aunt Jessie may do in right. Through the pre and post-war years they evolve their system, recognize her strength and goodness, and go their own ways -- but at the end, it is Aunt Jessie who proves her rightness. Chicago setting, in a tribute to an era.
