(price-clipped) [moderate shelfwear, previous owner's name and date purchased written on ffep, small stamp (a 1963 Christmas Seal) on front pastedown; jacket worn, rear panel soiled, a couple of ragged tears at top of front panel, a few other small tears]. "A novel of youth by a new writer of distinction." The novel is "the moving story of Eliza Wall, part realist, part dreamer; of her growing obsession with Claw Moreau, the outcast French Canadian; of the suspicious, disapproving Maine townsfolk, with tongues too ready to accuse and hearts too slow to forgive. Swift events follow upon their meddling -- flight, disillusion, revenge. Out of these Eliza Wall stands revealed as she is and must be."
