Kirkus Review -
Les Girls- Emily and Sophy- decide to resume canal cruising, as first undertaken two years earlier in Water, Water Everywhere and persuade Sophy's husband- Arthur- and the Lindsays- Howard and Dorothy- to join them on the English waterways. Sophy and Emily make a trial heat aboard the Venturer with the considerable help of Mr. Walley, and there are some initial discomforts of provisioning aboard, tangling with terminology (a potholder is an oven cloth and not to be bought) and coping with the intricacies of navigation. There is an interim trip to Wales- and there they are joined by the Lindsays- and Arthur- aboard the Maid Mary a Late team keeps an interested distance; and the cruise with nights ashore and pleasant excursions on land is underway... For others- so minded- there is a good deal of practical detail on this particularly tranquilizing form of travel-- and for everyone, the degage manner which has endeared her to an enduring audience.
