Synopsis: Julia's fifteenth year is filled with jealousy, forgiveness, first love, and artistic satisfaction, all against a background of loving support from her adored uncle, adopted grandmother, and other family members.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-9 Julia Redfern makes her fifth appearance in this sequel to her introduction in A Room Made of Windows (Little, 1971). On the verge of 15 as the story opens, Julia is secure in her accomplishments as a writer and is also exploring her talents as an actress. Now a mature, observant, multi-faceted character, she finds that her perceptions and relationships grow more complex as she does. Julia comes to terms with her father's death, her stepfather, the frailties of her beloved Uncle Hugh, her first love, and the death of her friend Rhiannon in this novel of growth and understanding set in post-World War I Berkeley, California. Cameron effectively creates the atmosphere of a time long past, yet evokes a genuine immediacy in Julia's emotions and an authenticity in her voice that contemporary readers will recognize. Events parallel experiences today's readers facerivalry, infatuation, failure, and success, and they unfold in a believable manner that builds to an unrealistically swift crescendo of climax, out of step with the thoughtful pace of the earlier chapters. Characterization is smooth and vivid in even the most minor players, although the behavior of Rhiannon's unpleasant sister Lydia seems somewhat outrageous, particularly when directed at a child. Despite these quibbles, fans of Julia, and newcomers as well, will welcome this addition. Although the book stands well on its own, readers' enjoyment will be enhanced with the experience of the previous titles. Starr LaTronica, North Berkeley Library, Calif.
