When Evadne arrived at Williamsburg as Stephen Sprague's bride in the autumn of 1938, the long family history in the little Virginia town was a new and fascinating story to her. Evadne noticed that the portrait of Grandfather Julian's wife Tibby looked exactly like her own niece Mab, who had never been to Williamsburg, but who at thirteen knew the family chronicle by heart. In this, the 1938-41 volume, we find Evadne back at her warden's post in London; Stephen with his new mobile canteen; Jack on his job under fire as much as any soldier, Sylvia sticking to her Animal First Aid post; Virginia at Farthingale; and Mab, too young to go for a VAD but considering herself too old for evacuation, turning her back on the place she wanted most to be, because Jeff was in England, writing the blitz, and where Jeff was she had to stay

A far cry from Miss Thane's historical fiction and biography, this very gentle, whimsical and exceedingly pleasant love story of Sabrina, an imaginative, unworldly girl of seventeen and the British secret service agent who died on the Indian Northwest frontier. Sabrina's father takes the old house of Huns Farthing for the summer -- and Sabrina, exploring the locked room at the top of the house, attains a feeling of intimacy with the unknown owner through his possessions, Hilary, Just then Hilary is killed on the frontier, and he comes back to his old room. Sabrina is immediately conscious of his presence, and falls in love with the dead soldier watching over her. Her father and aunt, aware of the supernatural activities in the house, and Sabrina's strange behaviour decide to take her away -- but death intervenes and Sabrina joins Hilary. A very tender, charming story -- with an old-world and other-world quality. For those who liked Berkeley Square, The City Lies, Four-Square and so on. (Kirkus Reviews, March 1, 1939)
