The Young Clementina by D.E. Stevenson

Image may contain: one or more people and textTruly a gem! Published in 1938, this is the story of Charlotte Dean, a young lady who has become resigned to her lonely life in London as a spinster who works as a poorly paid assistant in a dusty travel library. Could anything be more boring? Charlotte’s first-person narrative of the background to her situation is completely absorbing. And then, things change! Dramatically! A very satisfying story, well told.
Many of this author’s novels are now being re-published as a new generation of readers are discovering the delight of her heartwarming stories.
