KIRKUS REVIEW

Robert Tregwith's return to Newfoundland brings the quick decision to marry his stepsister, Nan, but the old saying ""Tregwith wife, short life"" adds an uneasy note to Nan's engagement while his uncertain connections with a man called Hooper and his daughter Eve further her hesitation. Her stepfather's death and her inheritance, the discovery of uranium on their land, and a bout with pneumonia during which Robert is mostly absent- with Eve, precipitate the realization that it is someone else she loves- while he loves Eve. Not coy, but definitely demure. Rentals.
