This, on the other hand, is definitely a book of general interest. It consists of the notes of a Dominican sister, a parochial school teacher somewhere in England, whose technique of courage and sincerity and love is a challenge to teachers and parents everywhere. She is modest about her own share in guiding little children through dangerous days in England. She writes with rare facility, and reflects the undramatic truth about a brave people. There is a flame of patriotism, almost unconscious, a Christian -- rather than merely a Catholic -- approach. One senses that she met the worst as well as ordinary events with humor and patience. She says that ""even the worst is quite bearable when the cause is a good one"". A book for all faiths.
