VALLEY OF DECISION by Margaret Flint


Email this review


The author of the prize winner, The Old Ashburn Place, tells a story of a immature youth, who leaves his motherless home on a run-down farm to find a new home with a friend of his mother's in a Mississippi Gulf Coast town. For a time sated by comfort and sufficient food and protection, he drifts in uncertainty, indecision. But his friendship with Sara and her mother, and his ""aunt's"" opposition harden him and he emerges into manhood and a knowledge of himself. There lacks the strong emotional power of The Old Ashburn Place, but the characterizations, though definitive, are real, and the story well told.
