Stock Code:


A Letter from James by Mona Anderson. 'On 28 February 1880 the sailing ship Westland, after a record-breaking voyage of eighty-six days, from Plymouth, anchored in Lyttelton Harbour. On board were Susannah Tarling, her husband James and two sons, James and Willie. Two younger Tarling boys, Johnny and Thomas, had died on the long voyage out. Susannah was Mona Anderson's grandmother, whom the author first introduced in her third book, Over the River: She was a cripple. She was very small, with her silver hair parted down the centre. and a little bob at the back. She was patient, kind, witty, wise and sad. Her sweet face and gentle nature endeared her to all she meet.' Mona Anderson's vivid account of the lives of her Grandparents in Colonial Canterbury New Zealand.' A previous owner's Ex Libris plate on the inside front page but overall a very tidy First Edition.
