KIRKUS REVIEW

Not up to Brassbound -- but fairish woman's magazine type of story, in a tale of the uprising of a ghost from the wartime past, and a nearly successful bit of blackmail destined to shatter the serenity of a happy home. The mother thinks life is all serene. Beneath her feet the volcano seethes:- the husband is terrified of the threat to her happiness; the son almost succeeds in marrying a local leading lady: the daughter is apparently on the verge of committing incest. But all comes right. Circulating library market.
