Our John Willie:
Caught in a sudden flood, the two Halladay brothers escape drowning, but the tragedy has swept away the only world they know, their grim existence in the English coal country pits. Left without family or home, they have nothing except the bond of devotion between them-indomitable Davy, who is almost a man, and innocent young John Willie, who can neither hear nor speak but whose understanding far surpasses that of the villagers who call him "Halladay's idiot." When the boys' struggle for survival involves them with eccentric Miss Peamarsh, her life is vastly changed, too; but the chilling mystery that cloaks her past looms suddenly to threaten their fragile happiness. The author of "The Dwelling Place" lends immediacy and warmth to this nineteenth century tale of loyalty and love, of gentleness personified in a small human being: Our John Willie.« less
