Ralph and Anna Eldred live in the big Red House in Norfolk, raising their four children and devoting their lives to charity. The constant flood of ‘good souls and sad cases’, children plucked from the squalor of the East London streets for a breath of fresh countryside air, hides the growing crises in their own family, the disillusionment of their children, the fissures in their marriage.
A good copy only. The publisher's have stamped the pages' underside with "Damaged" but I can't see anything basically wrong with the book. The boards are slightly rubbed, the dustwrapper knocked to the edges but a good readable copy.
