A lovely unread copy.; This historical novel, set during the English Civil War in an Oxfordshire village, features the Haslewood family. "In the manor house, Margaret Haslewood and her twin children wait for news of her husband Robert, who has gone to fight for the cause of Parliament. At the hearth of wise and gentle Froniga, whose skill in healing and clarity of moral vision brings life and vigor to the Romani community, and in the painter's brush of young Francis Leyland, who puts his life in the service of the king, Elizabeth Goudge weaves a tale of enduring insight into what makes us feel at home in the world, and the forces that threaten to tear our homes apart." The publisher of this edition added a note that says in part: First written in 1958, this novel "includes many passages that display oppressive attitudes in matters of race relations. ...many Romani people still face discrimination today. We believe that offering this book to readers as Elizabeth Goudge wrote it allows us to see English literary culture in 1958 in a way that would be obscured were we to alter the text. Justice must be based on truth."; "A rich, long panorama of England in the time of Charles I, when Cavalier and Puritan strove for the mastery of the realm. The story opens with the appearance of Francis Leyland in the little village of Flowercote." Recommended by Charlotte K. of the DES email discussion group, Sandi M. and Amy S. of the E Goudge email discussion group and Anne C. of the AT and EG email discussion lists.
