About this Item

Green cloth with gilt lettering. Light rub to head and heel of spine. Tips of corners bumped and rubbed. Previous owner signature to front endpaper. Text shows light foxing, the occasional thumb smudge, lightly and evenly tanned. "It is as the novelist of New England that Alice Brown has won the hearts of thousands of readers Few writers have been able to portray with the sympathy and the understanding that are hers the sturdy folk way down east or to picture so truly the environment in which they have lived. The story deals with the Neales, the hard unflinching head of the house, Mary his wife, who in her long life with him revolts only once at the law which he lays down, and their two sons Ben, likeable but weak and Hugh, a bit of a visionary but guided by high ideals a thorough man. Of equal importance in the little drama that is worked out is Ellen, daughter of a neighbor who shuns men's society, to whom the word love is almost repulsive, but to whom love comes in a moment and forever. Aunt Tabitha, the silent mouse-like creature who lives in mortal dread of her brother Thomas Neale, with whom by the terms of their father's will she has been given a home and who rarely dares venture out of her room for fear of encountering the stern presence of her relative. Grissie Gleason, light-hearted a lover of pretty things who almost comes to grief through her own thoughtlessness, and that of Ben, and above all Larry Greene, possibly the most charming character in the book, a giver of good advice, genial, a man of parts whose only failing is a too great fondness for drink. These are some of the others in Bromley Neighborhood around whom Miss Brown has written a most engaging romance .". Bookseller Inventory # B21811
