This book was first published in England in 1946. Elizabeth Cadell has been one of my favorite authors for forty years, and this book is my very favorite of the thirty-some she has written. I am rereading it this week and my family can hear laughter coming from wherever I have perched myself to read. I have a nice collection of her books, thanks to ebay.
I must admit feeling a bit of distress when hearing my favorite music referred to as "Oldies". For pity's sake, this music isn't OLD. Yes, I came to love it in the 60's, but that doesn't make it old. Don't you love Simon and Garfunkle? My favorite song on this album is "The Sound of Silence"
