The Balance Wheel has all the strengths and all the weaknesses of the page-turner, pot-boiler novel: decent people caught in the cross purposes of turbulent times; far too many instances of "simple belief" and instinctive or intuitive understanding; a passionate statement about the waste and futility of war and an ending that is only ironic when fully comprehended. This is not a "feel good" book but one worth rereading.
