From the Publisher"It would be impossible for a reader not to feel better from reading the story…her rich understanding of human nature, her humor and her beautiful prose inevitably leave one aglow."
— Chicago Tribune
"…an extraordinarily gifted writer who manages to infuse her novels with a special magic of their own."
— Boston Herald
"May well prove the book of the year for those who are not ashamed to weep over the printed page…author Godden here tries her deft writing hand at landscaping a child’s heart."
"It is a sentimental tale, well told, with an unlikely and entirely satisfactory ending."
— The New Yorker
"It has a dizzying cast of characters, radiating out from the inhabitants of a once-gentel London residential square to the residents of the teeming commercial streets beyond."
— The Horn Book
A gentle, poignant story, poetically conceived with a fairy godmother ending. Recommended for all…
