Review Text

This bird-brained, in fact peewee-witted, entertainment flits from a lonely "hovel" in Hampshire, England, where Mrs. Lucille Abbey goes to handle a Professor Hallam, and his job, to France, where she attempts to take charge of her aunt's corner shop. There is a small mystery of sorts, dealing with a stolen sea horse, and a small romance - that of the Professor and Mrs. Abbey. Elizabeth Cadell has devised more reasonable stories than this one, but, for a certain audience, it is one of those inconsequential essentials. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
