240 pp, small 8vo (7 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "In one love Connie is unshakeable: that which she feels for the wild countryside of Dartmoor. But when it comes to the young men in her life she is less decided. There is much to be said f or either - for the attractive young master carpenter, Robert Fontaine, of romantic French extraction, and for George Redvers, the honest young labourer, as simple-minded as herself. And if Robert shows less than respect for the country whi c h i s s o dear to Connie, it is true also that George likes to shoot the wild creatures she loves. But it is more momentous matters than these which force Connie to make her choice, and in doing so, to act against her true heart. In this stor y of We st Co un try life the problems of various characters are at least resolved when, with the coming of the 1914 war, each in his own fashion finds that he can serve his fellows. In its wisdom, its wit, and its warmheartedness it is typical o f its aut hor . E den Phillpotts is a veteran storyteller still without rivals in the telling of a country tale."
