THE TERRACE by Louise Andrews Kent

Email this review


A thoroughly entertaining story and a picture of New Englanders which is worth reading for its portrayal of a type alone. Very general appeal, with ingredients for a varied audience, men and women, and all who enjoy first class fiction, with more depth than the average. The story revolves around the Merediths, a family living in five beautiful houses on ""The Terrace"" and typifying the ""reigning family"" idea so characteristic of certain communities north of Boston. Cousin Sally tells the story, frankly, engagingly, sometimes bluntly, often with keen humor. There is romance; there is mystery. If you remember your customers for The Six Mrs. Greenes, try this out on them. Also these who like A Gay Family.
