HOME AGAIN by Margaret M. Scott


Email this review


Seventeen year old Henrietta hates farming in Florida, and resents her family's acceptance of it as a way of life, along with early marriage; she approves of Marvin who is aiming for college, but is out of sympathy with his ambition to study farming. This is the story of her false start on a career of studying for nursing -- of the jolt in New York in an experience with a young criminal which shock her back to her real self -- of her first year nursing course and the awakening of her social conscience to real values, the good in farming and her home, and the soundness of Marvin's ambitions. With plausible motivation and not too obvious moralizing, this is a good tale of wholesome way of life, modern style. Branch libraries -- rentals.
