The Child From the Sea Author:Elizabeth Goudge One of the Great Storytellers in the English language presents her most magnificent novel-on every bestseller list in 1970 and 1971! — The Child From the Sea tells the rich turbulent tale of Lucy Walter, secret wife of Charles II, and mistress-despite-herself to a gallant and reckless Irish nobleman in exile. It is a story filled with the passio... more »ns and adventure of an age of glory and squalor, nobility and depravity, courage and betrayal. It is a drama that ranges from an isolated castle in Wales, to the pomp and ceremony of London, to the glitter, intrigue and license of Paris. Above all, it is an intensely moving, unforgettable portrayal of a woman as proud as she was beautiful, whose untamed heart was torn between two men and whose lovely body and shining spirit tipped the scales of history.
ELIZABETH GOUDGE, whose novels have sold over twelve million copies, has written her greatest and most spellbinding triumph.
