KIRKUS REVIEW

This one won't bear much scrutiny but you'll read it and forget it with equal case--a powder puff entertainment about Gwen and Bill Mills who are childless until they take in Cecily, Gwen's half-sister, who is the product of her feckless father and his dreadful second wife. Actually Cecily, sixteen, is no child--she's a fully developed shrike who sends Gwen, before long, into a mental institution, tries to seduce Bill, and.... Teatotally for the ladies who will know just where they're at.
