KIRKUS REVIEW

An unusual first novel, and one that should win friends readily. The story of a man who, by accident, becomes heir to the wealth that the reigning family of a Canadian village considers theirs by right. How they try to get it by the might of a decree of ostracism -- how they are fought with weapons they know not how to meet in a man whose one desire is for love and friendship and understanding and service, is told in a rather poignant and stirring book. There's an underlying philosophy that will stimulate thoughtful readers. Again a book that the Lloyd Douglas audience should like.
