A lovely unread copy.; In this beloved author's first novel, set in the 19th century on Guernsey, we meet the du Frocq family. The story is based on the memories of Goudge's mother who grew up on Guernsey. ; "A really charming book, very human and humourful, with five of the most real children I have ever met in fiction and full of the most gorgeous discriptions of life in Guernsey."-- Daily Telegraph "The year is 1888. Rachell and Andre du Frocq live on a run-down farm in the town of St. Pierre, on one of the Channel Islands (between England and the coast of Normandy). The proud parents of five high-spirited children, they have wrestled their happiness out of heartache: they've buried three babies and depleted Rachell's inheritance to keep the farm alive."
