[good solid copy, bottom corners lightly bumped; jacket a tiny bit dog-eared at top of spine]. Novel set against the background of a Quaker community, examining the life of Mildred Moore through the narrative device of remembrances at her funeral service. "What was the meaning of Mildred Moore's work in France during the First World War, in Russia during the famine of the twenties, in Depression-torn mining villages of Wales? Had she loved herself more than God's people? Was her goodness preferable to another's evil? Such questions bedevil the minds of those come to mourn. With love, fear or resentment coloring his view, each is finally compelled to see how his life has been forged by the philanthropist."
