Descripción

An unusual juvenile novel by the Wellesley educator best known for her anthem "America the Beautiful." One contemporary review summarizes the book thus: "A very interesting story, with some extremely original characterization. A small island indefinitely located off the Atlantic coast is the scene of the story -- three families for various reasons live here, alone, and the main interest in the story is the description of the unconventional life and development of the young people's ideas. The delineation of the fierce, passionate nature of 'Dolo,' so full of possibilities either for good or evil, contrasted with the sunny, light-hearted, though somewhat weak nature of her sister 'Del' is a fine piece of work. The description of Dolo's midnight sacrifice of 'all that made her good' 'to the altar of the Evil Spirit' is very weird and uncanny, and not a little pathetic." Spine darkened, small burn mark to cover, front free endpaper lacking; still a very good copy, and quite rare. N° de ref. de la librería 15520
