KIRKUS REVIEW

A first novel against a Wisconsin setting -- a story of four generations, with the central character, Selma, of the second generation in an America which was to turn optimism and idealism into mounting avarice and disillusionment. The characters in the other generations seem shadowy, unreal -- Selma holds the center of the stage. It is a book that will repay most readers, particularly mothers of daughters; but it is not a book for indiscriminate recommendation.
