Reviews

A Disappointment


(4 stars)

This sequel to "Aunt Hannah and John and Mattie" is not quite as interesting, despite its occasional moments of melodrama. The theme is all about the evils of alcohol, and the development of the characters is sacrificed to that theme. Once again, many thanks due to Mary Ann for her narration, which was excellent.
