Golden Arrow by Mary Webb

In a send up to Webb and her novels after her death, Ethel Wallace Hawkins wrote in the Atlantic Monthly:  "The Golden Arrow, it is as if, from time to time, a sweet elusive air were played on a harp far away."

Condition: Good. Missing dust jacket. Rubbing and shelf wear to boards, fading at the spine.

"Folk to tea was a great event, fir here it was only in the summer that the hamlets could link hands over the ridges, the white blossom flow up from the plains till it almost met on the summit, the farmer's wife on one side of the ridge walk over to see her sister on the other side."
