KIRKUS REVIEW

Yet another in Miss Duncan's benign Dick and Jane series for homebodies as Janet Sandison (alone after the death of ""Twice,"" remember) returns to the Reachfar of her beginnings and those that are left. Notably two nice old codgers, George and Tom, who fix up Jemima Cottage which the three will share even if sometimes they feel she is much too ""clever"" for them (all those books she wrote). There are the family visits of her brother and his children, including one lovable Mongoloid; the doing over of the barn to give her a little more privacy; and finally the ""something come over Tom""--his death at 96. Just like it was--small doings, small thoughts stretching over ""a puckle years"" or more that Reachfars back forever.
