Excerpt from Hill Rise

The earliest recollection of Lizzie Crunden were full of Hill Rise - as something spacious and awe-productive, opening out before you, upward to thoughts of grandeur and mystery.

She would wake and look at it from her bedroom window of a summer morning, and childishly brood on the magnificence of the prospect it offered. A broad white road, empty as yet, still sleeping in the summer sunlight; with noble houses on either side, carriage gates and broad steps, white may, red may, yellow laburnum showing gaily over garden walls - a wide ascending vista closed by the stately trees in the grounds of Hill House, where lived the great Sir John. This was Lizzie's view of it, and Lizzie felt herself a happy, lucky child, because papa's house stood fair and square at the bottom of Hill Rise.

Papa Crunden was the most prosperous, solidly respectable builder in all the town of Medford. To the awakening and expanding intelligence of his little daughter, it seemed that Medford, with its eighteen thousand inhabitants, formed a vastly important city, and that papa in his own way was a very considerable force. He was not illustrious and mysterious like Sir John Vincent of Hill House - a gentleman, a baronet, and what not else, vaguely, crushingly grand. But he had his men; a small army of them; he had the place they called "the yard," and the other places they called "the works," as well as this ample residence which was called "home," or "King's Cottage." Certainly papa was not without importance in the world's scheme.

No one could make light of him when he was displeased.
