There are some defects in the book, but they are predictable and easily forgiven. In one of the most bizarre turns, a minor character suddenly announces that what's wrong with everybody in the world today (it's the early 1950s) is that they no longer believe in a god. It's clear that the author wants this critique to be taken seriously. The other problem is that Ms. Stevenson takes care of the need for David to have a "romance" only in a very hasty last chapter, where he "suddenly" realizes that he "loves" a girl he has known for almost his entire life. I would have been happier to see David as deprived of female companionship at the novel's end as he was at the novel's beginning... he needed to concentrate on his writing!
It's definitely worth seeking out a copy of this book, in expensive hardback or in a recent (but still rare) trade paperback reprint. This is Ms. Stevenson doing what she did best.
