A lovely unread copy.; The lovely story of Canon Leigh and his family in Christ Church, Oxford (where the author and her parents once lived) during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I.; "It is late sixteenth-century London when awkward teenage Faithful travels to Oxford to study in England's great university. When Canon Leigh takes him in, Faithful enters into a family as exciting and educational as the university itself.
Woven into the narratives of Faithful and the canon's daughter Joyeuce is Oxford during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I with the pomp and sordidness of the spectacular era of England's Golden Age. Not only a historical journey, 'Towers in the Mist' is also a coming-of-age tale of young love and hope." Cover matches stock image.
