Crusoe's Daughter

Jane Gardam

1 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

* A reissue of one of Jane Gardam's best-loved novels

In 1904, when she was six, Polly Flint went to live with her two holy aunts at the yellow house by the marsh - so close to the sea that it seemed to toss like a ship, so isolated that she might have been marooned on an island.

And there she stayed for eighty-one years, while the century raged around her, while lamplight and Victorian order became chaos and nuclear dread.

Crusoe's Daughter, ambitious, moving and wholly original, is her story.
