KIRKUS REVIEW

This continues the family history launched in Remember the Day and Oh, Promise Me -- as the author recounts adventures in politics as her father campaigns in Eastmeadow, Michigan, for Congress on a platform of R.F.D., wins the election, and takes the family to Washington. Kathie's brilliant ideas succeed in getting Mama into society, While Aunt Sophie achieves her ambition to know Susan B. Anthony better. Aunt Melony ad designs on President Cleveland, and -- when he becomes engaged to Miss Folsom -- determines to outshine the bride at the wedding. A brief trip to Europe -- and eventually a return home culminate in Aunt Melony's giving a party ... If you remember the earlier books you'll recognize again the repetitious style, the forcible archness, the adamant cuteness which combine to destroy what might be enjoyable reminiscences.
