This was good for delicate little Jane, who sat in her cart perched high on the bank above the brook, watching my struggles with a big hot-bed frame that I was trying to place over the water-cresses. There had been frost during the night, but it had spared the cresses, and I wished to coax them to live a little longer for Janeys sake. She liked them with her bread and butter.The tiny valley, with its brook, was situated midway between Braithe House, which stood on the high edge of the plateau near the river, and what had once been the entrance gates, a mile to the west. Formerly Braithe Manor had boasted an avenue two miles in length- but that was before the new road by the river, from Hilltown, had been opened.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
