Author: Mabel Esther Allan

Margaret Finds a Future is one of the most rare of Mabel Esther Allan’s titles.
When 17 year old Margaret has to leave school and face a new life, she travels in mid winter to stay with an unknown aunt in Norfolk, the custodian of Great Melveney Hall. At first Margaret finds life very difficult but she grows to love the house and what she is doing. She makes friends, and eventually finds a job after her own heart. When spring comes to Melveney, she looks forward with hope and excitement towards the future.
Includes not only some of the author’s comments on the setting and the cover, but also a short story, Danger on the Saltings, also set in Norfolk, which was never included in her privately printed collections.
