TOMBOY ROW by Ruth Holberg


Email this review


More about the chubby, adventuresome Rowena Carey as she blunders and frolics her way through another winter and summer at Rockport, Massachusetts, and makes some slight progressions towards ladyhood. Again the sea coast, artist colony atmosphere, the winter doings versus the summer ones, visits from New Yorkers and friendship with a very sophisticated city girl, add to Rowena's own desires and escapades;- sliding down a firehouse pole, wanting to be a graceful dancer like her friend Doody in the St. Patrick's day show, or giving a baseball a powerful swat- to make a lively chronicle of six more Rockport months.
