The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

The story of a family of Purtian children at the time of the religious persecutions, in 17th century England, and of their escape to America in the Red Lily.

This story tells of a delightful family at the time of the religious persecutions in England, and of their escape to America. Old Sir Timon has never become reconciled to his son's change of faith and opposes the family's leaving England by every means in his power, even to kidnapping the children, and thereby hangs the tale. — Toby knew how to keep a secret, but when his father's plans go awry and the children are imprisoned in a tower, he knows someone has betrayed them. The attempts to escape, their frustrations, and final success make an exciting story told with charm and humor and with the delightful description one expects from Miss Savery.
