A repeat on The Terrace, which did well, and again a nice mounting in New England (this time Boston), a story revolving around a ramifying old family, and quietly humorous, sometimes tongue-in-cheek writing. But this lacks the mystery angle of the former, and the pace. It is straight young romance, perhaps a little affected by Mrs. Kent's recent juvenile output. the story deals with the great nieces and nephews of a wealthy old curmudgeon who dies leaving his estate to Diana, the one he knew least. She is hounded by all her relatives in turn, for marriage, save by Nick whom she loves and who returns from airfighting in China blinded. Diana does a pretty comprehensive job of sitting on the unpleasant family adjuncts, engineering two romances, and finally marrying Nick herself when he recovers his sight. Cream puff, but pleasant.
