KIRKUS REVIEW

In this, her last novel, Nelia Gardner White, tells in the first person the story of a woman who has cheated herself of her birthright. In her proud determination to make those nearest her what she felt they should be, she has thrust out of her life a husband, who loved her, a small daughter, who grew up to beauty and maturity and a son whom she adored. Tragedy and rejection brought some right out of the spiderweb of wrong for others and forced her to face her failures in loneliness of her own making. It is perhaps Nelia Gardner White's most penetrating and disturbing book.
