KIRKUS REVIEW

Like many of this author's previous books, including The Riddle of the Figure-head, (1963), one of the most appealing features is the well-realized Welsh country-side which is actually an integral part of this devotionally-inclined story. A group of children -- Dorothy Milner, the daughter of the Vicar; Sharon Llewellyn, whose parents work in films; an Italian brother and sister; and the children of a poor farmer -- get together, despite their varying backgrounds and religions, to lovingly reconstruct and old, dilapidated church lost in the woods. The church itself is intended to be, like Iona Abbey, a place for everyone to worship (even an aged cart horse). The symbolism of the rainbow is dished out periodically with a sentimentality otherwise tastefully omitted.
