Review Text

A new departure for Norah Lofts, in a strange story of a crippled youth, estranged from the father who hated his deformity, in love with the girl his father had deliberately befriended, and fascinated by tales of the new lands in America. He goes to London, is smitten with the plague, recovers in time to join - along with the girl and the friend who had married her to protect her - an expedition to America to find a new Zion. And there, in the wilderness, comes out again new forms of intolerance and the evils they had fled in the old world. A story lacking depth and conviction - dated. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
