Celia's House

Передняя обложка
Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1971 - Всего страниц: 255
In name and by birth, Celia was a Dunne. She had inherited the beautiful old family home by the Rydd Water - but was she bound to live her life by the principles of her predecessors? Was there some hidden restraint that compelled her to heed the past? Celia's House is a moving and poignant story of the struggle between old and young: the older generation anxious to preserve the values they have helped create and their children, determined at all costs to make lives of their own.
