THE HADDEN SISTERS by Sydney Thompson


Email this review


With the death of a minister, Stephen Hadden, Mary- his second wife- is left with the domestic problems of his daughters, to which she applies her quiet powers of persuasion. The marriage of Justine and Sam founders on her guilt towards a first husband a pilot- who had died; Glennis stiffens her lip and her heart toward the indiscretions of her husband, John Talbot, a successful writer; and Beth, the youngest, has the chance to even out her old resentment of her older sister when John, a philanderer, suggests a divorce from Glennis and marriage to her. But Mary is successful in soothing all these situations, and then goes on to her life alone....The petticoat prerogative- for rent- clean and cathartic.
