Plain, pale blue boards (no d/jkt); a little worn and marked; binding intact, though a little frail. Owners' names on front endpaper. A very scarce novel of Jersey life. Hilda Balleine's dates were 1878-1921; this novel was left complete at her death, and was published posthumously. The Yorkshire Post said of it: "Like a breath of spring wind, heavily laden with the scent of gorse and violets, comes Miss Balleine's book to convince us that out of the winter of sordid realism, of poverty stricken plot, of weariness of repetition, life and vigour can be renewed".; 8vo (5" x 8"); 256 + 8pp Pblr's cat. pages
