Just when rural Victorian England was shifting from time-honored country ways to a more industrialized suburban lifestyle, Flora Thompson captured this vanishing world of village life. With a keen eye and gentle, heartfelt wit, she presents an elegy to her childhood and adolescence and a picture of the world that is now a cherished part of the past.
