Description

A Gallows Tree. A Novel of life in early New Zealand by Florence Preston. 'This is the story of Joanna Lewison, whose mother died in giving her birth, whose father was never seen again, who was brought up by a rabelaisian, gin-soaking Granny in a New Zealand small town. Joanna's early life with this old reprobate was relieved only by glimpses of paradise when she stayed with an aunt and uncle in mountain country; for the rest, her sensitive, imaginative soul suffered torment. It was not surprising therefore, that she fell for the urgent wooing of young, ambitious Dr. Denniston and agreed to marry him with little understanding of what that marriage entailed. The book covers have light stain spots and the spine has faded. The book has some light foxing and small age stains but overall remains tight and bright.
