KIRKUS REVIEW

An English pastor (chapel) at the turn of the century leaves his East Anglia parish and with his family comes to a Maine coastal village. Highly eccentric, equally good and devoted, his is a career filled with humor, pathos, and nostalgia. Characterized by evocative depictions of time, place, and character, this story of the minister, his wife, adolescent daughter, and ten-year-old twins will easily win readers who through experience or fancy have responded to the particular magic of Maine life.
