Good. Ex-Library Book-will contain Library Markings. Only lightly used. Book has minimal wear to cover and binding. A few pages may have small creases and minimal underlining. Book selection as BIG as Texas.
This is a wonderfully heartwarming tale of a solitary child sent from the city to live with her relations in the Hungarian countryside before the war. A cossetted character, usually given her own way in all things, she learns the meaning of responsibility and the giving and gaining of respect. With its interesting insight into the lives of those living on the land in Europe in the early 19th. century, it also has a resonance for the children of today when it questions values and goals for life. All round a great read.
