Lucy Maria Boston (1892-1990) purchased a ramshackle manor house near Cambridge, England, in 1935, which over a period of two years she lovingly restored. It is the house that inspired her, at the age of sixty-two, to take pen in hand and create the beloved Green Knowe chronicles. L.M. Boston said she wrote her books to please herself--but the pleasure of her stories extends to all who read them.Review:
Magic and mystery combine... Boston is an effortless stylist and her magic seems as simple as breathing. -- The Washington Post
