KIRKUS REVIEW

A long out-of-fashion model of didactic decorum, full of dear blessed's and bless you's, this small romance follows Sybil--after the death of her father--to France where she has most belatedly and circumambiently been told of the existence of a half-brother, Felix. (He had had a full sister, Felicia, who burned to death.) Well Felix is now living with a singer, ""harmless as a milk pudding,"" and not quite ""right"" for him so it's another story to follow of another deception which will free him for Sybil. A somnifacient of the first order, say ovaltine on the rocks.
