KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the Prix Femina for 1939, and again a disappointment. The story of the last voyage of a battered tub owned by a boy and his uncle, and destined for a scuttling to secure the insurance. But the boy determines to thwart his uncle's plan, when a woman stowaway gives birth to a child on board, and he forfeits his own life for that of the child and the crew. Hard on the surface, but with undercurrents of sentiment and nobility.
