Portrait of a Carpenter was the sort of book people read from a library and bought to keep. This is an equally arresting book, honest and to the point, it deals with the problems that baffle the young idea today. Miss Kirkland opens the doors and windows of her keen and creative mind to let the reader see how she comes to the conclusions. Unlike most people she is able to give a reason for the Faith that is in her with lucidity and conviction. Teachers, clergy, parents and the young-at-heart regardless of age will buy this book and not regret it.
