Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Kerr is at her comic and poignant best."—Booklist

"Different eras, conflicting life styles, and contrasting social backgrounds are interwoven into a tale that should captivate readers."—School Library Journal

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A ring, with the inscription ``I stay near you'' is passed through three generations, setting off events that both bring lovers together and tear them apart. PW called Kerr ``an author with few peers in any genre today. Her stylistic excellence, wit and compassion for people in straits are manifest in this book.'' (12-up)
Children's Literature - Mary Sue Preissner
Using a gold ring, engraved in Basque with the words "I stay near you", M. E. Kerr has crafted three inter-related short stories about three generations affected by the love affair of a girl from the wrong side of the tracks and the town's "golden" boy. The contrasts of the eras, characters, and lifestyles will appeal to adolescent readers. 1997 (orig.
