Description


In 1904, six-year-old Polly Flint is sent to live with her aunt's in a house by the sea. Orphaned shortly thereafter, Polly will spend the next eighty years stranded in this quiet corner of the world as 20th century rages in the background. Throughout it all Polly returns again and again to the story of Robinson Crusoe, who, marooned like her, fends off the madness of isolation with imagination.

Like previous Gardam titles will skew to female readers and Anglophiles. An ideal choice for book clubs.
