. Reprint""A novel so lyrically written, it's not so much read as absorbed, like music,'' PW declared, summing up the effects of Walsh's contribution to literature in 1972. Madge and her cousin Paul exult in months at their grandmother's home, Goldengrove, by the sea in England. But a stranger who rents a cottage on Gran's place and a letter from Madge's mother change life forever for the girl and Paul. This is among the most memorable books by the British author of Unleaving, Fireweed, A Chance Child and other notable stories. (12-up)
