Read full description of the books:
Family relations and emotional crises in a New England household would naturally prove baffling to a Russian visitor, and here Mr. Poole in a most absorbing story gives not only the visitor's impressions but the real inwardness of events in the family of Bertram Dana, the astronomer. It is Dana's wife who holds the issues in her hands and it is her attitude of loyalty and reticence in a difficult martial situation that most amazes the Russian observer.
Here are characters that arouse real sympathy, a story dramatic but restrained, and a contrast between the American and Russian psychology that will provoke reflection.
