LEAVE IT TO LINDA by Marguerite Vance


Email this review


Problems of the family in which there is only one parent are difficult to handle at this age level. And yet books taking these situations into consideration are important and needed. This latest book of Marguerite Vance approaches the problem straightforwardly in the story of Linda, a sensitive and lively child, devoted to her beautiful, successful mother, but whose otherwise happy life is colored by a deep sense of incompleteness,- the child's basic need for a father. Linda's solution to this problem is somewhat less convincing than the exposition of the problem itself, but nevertheless, in this story of a little girl's first sure steps toward maturity, the author, once again, shows her talent for treating her characters with warmth and sympathy.
