  • The Rectory at St. Aidan's, wherein is located this delightful story, is truly the centre of parish life, possessing that greatly appreciated attraction - an ever-open door. The genial Rector is never happier than when dispensing hospitality. And as the story of English family life, in which we find the relationships of the principal characters somewhat mixed, unfolds itself, the interest of the reader is sustained to the very end by the efforts to unravel the tangle. High deals pervade the story, making it especially suitable for girls in their late teens.
