"A charming tale"
Existing readers of D.E. Stevenson will already know that her writing of family stories are rich in characters and settings, ranging from Victorian to post-war times. Always absorbing and with an emphasis on family values, this book is a great example of a style of writing now out of fashion. She wrote with a direct simplicity and just 'tells a story' that keeps you engrossed and wanting to find out more. Relax and enjoy this gentle family story.
