The Abbey Girls Go Back To School

£24.99

Product description

There is no dust jacket and the red boards are faded and slightly stained. The (cut) binding is still tight and the pages are clean and legible (slight boxing); on the inside cover is a Sunday School presentation label dated 1937.

There is one (colour) illustration and contents pages at the front.

The Abbey Series of British novels by Elsie J. Oxenham comprises 38 titles which were published between 1914 and 1959. The first title, Girls of the Hamlet Club set the scene for the school aspects of the series, but it is the second title, The Abbey Girls, that introduces The Abbey – almost a character within the series in its own right – a romantic ruin that inspires love for it as a quiet, peaceful place, and creates the wish to behave in the public-spirited tradition of the early Cistercian monks. These qualities go some way towards explaining the popularity of the series. This title was the 4th one of the series.
