Review Text

This is the "gladsome" sixteenth story about Janet and "Twice" (her husband) and their new friend is a girl, Percy, who reminds them of a swallow who "might take wing and fly out of reach." For a moment it looks as if Percy would settle down on their Caribbean island of St. Jago with a young man, but she doesn't, and the book ends with another separation - Twice's death. . . . Late middle-aged, home-bodied sentiment for an apparently indentured audience. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
