Description

First Edition, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, Signed, Uncommon, With Dustwrapper

First edition, signed by the author to the contents page.

Written by English novelist and poet Ralph Hale Mottram, known for his 'Spanish Farm Trilogy' and for his World War One poetry.

This particular novel is set after the fall of France in 1940, telling the story of a young girl born to one of the families in the occupied region. As a teenager, she is sent to work in a distinguished English girls school, throwing her into a completely different world.

This work explores post-war Britain and France through the eyes of a young girl and then a young woman.
