AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Esther and Oliver grew up together in Pepper Tree Bay. She was shy and lonely, oppressed by her parents' strange personalities, he was wild and adventurous and fascinated by this forlorn child so different from himself. Time and circumstances parted them. Esther went to live in formidable Mrs. Riccard's mansion, and Oliver left for the country to find work. There he met Hilary, also growing up the hard way. But Oliver never forgot his childhood companion. On his return to Pepper Tree Bay, he and Esther found that in spite of the intervening years and all the obstacles in their way, there was still a bond between them too strong to be broken...'
