Title: The House of the Paladin Author: Violet Needham Publisher: Girls Gone By Publishers Year: 2006 Condition: New
When Pandora comes to Parrham Royal she finds many problems and a strange mystery facing her. During the war years she and her mother had lived and worked with a band, of guerrillas in Greece. After her mother's tragic death she comes to England to live with her father, whom she barely remembers, and her cousins, whom she does not know at all. It is not easy to take her place in the household, and she has also to solve the riddle of the ancient temple on the hill and the treasure which may be hidden there. Over all is the uncanny influence of the Greek God Dionysus; and Pandora has need of a cool head and high courage, for she has to make decisions which may bring happiness to those she loves or may involve them all in terrible disaster.
The GGBP edition has a preface by Gerald Harford, Violet Needham’s great nephew, an introduction to the book by Hilary Clare, and an article on Violet Needham, also by Hilary Clare.
