AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The huge green turtle that glides swiftly through the water is painfully slow on land. It has a special place in Thornton's grandfather's heart. Long ago, on the day his mother died, there it was on the beach in front of him, nudging at his toes and inviting him to play' (Source: bookseller's website).
