Title: The Bell of the Four Evangelists Author: Violet Needham Publisher: Girls Gone By Publishers Year: 2011 Condition: New
This story tells of the unravelling of a mystery, and like other books by Violet Needham, is not easy to stop reading. The heroine, twelve-year-old Penelope, feels that there is some strange secret about Marvel’s Folly from the moment that she goes to stay in the old house with her invalid cousin. “Queer things happen by moonlight and the owl’s cry,” the old gardener warned her, and as the summer passes she unravels the bitter secrets of her family's past and helps to restore ‘the age-old right’ promised by the Bell of the Four Evangelists.
The GGBP edition has an introduction by Hilary Clare.
