With this final installment in the life of the Moreau family (Christmas Lessons, A Time to Choose) a sad event becomes a source of growth for all. Particularly for Cecile, the youngest of Dr. Moreau's four lively daughters, affectionately nicknamed ""The Pest,'' her father's sudden death provokes grief heavily laced with guilt. She fears that her penchant for becoming involved in situations from which her father was forced to rescue her caused the strain on his heart. As Cecile adjusts to living alone with her mother in their much-loved, shabby house outside Paris, the nearby close-knit family of sisters, their husbands and children fill the gap left by Dr. Moreau's death. Cecile's 18-year-old worldly wisdom and ebullience are captured in a lively translation that brings this attractive family saga to a satisfying conclusion. (March)
