An English girl, a Polish refugee, and a displaced boy from the Orient explore an island-strewn river near the ancient manor house, Green Knowe.About the Author:
Lucy Maria Boston (1892-1990) purchased a ramshackle manor house near Cambridge, England, in 1935, which over a period of two years she lovingly restored. It is the house that inspired her, at the age of sixty-two, to take pen in hand and create the beloved Green Knowe chronicles. L.M. Boston said she wrote her books to please herself, but the pleasure of her stories extends to all who read them. Simon Vance is a native of Brighton, England. After graduating from the Brighton School of Music and Drama, and Leeds University, Vance embarked on a lengthy career with the BBC, in addition to narrating for the Talking Book Service of the Royal National Institute for the Blind. Later, he moved his residence and narrating career to California. His work has received five AudioFile ‘Earphone’ awards and three ‘Audie’ award nominations.
