Book Details

Title:A Night in Cold Harbour
Kennedy, Margaret   
(3 of 4 for author by title)
Red Sky at Morning
Jane Austen
Published:   1960
Publisher:The Macmillan Company

Set in early 19th century England, it is a story of a young aristocrat who is born with a silver spoon in his mouth but eventually gags on it. Before he achieves maturity, he has devastated more than one life, including that of his illegitimate son. Romily Brandon's belated search for this boy provides the framework for a tale of conflicting passions, cross-purposes and tangled relationships. Young Dickie Cottar is a child labourer and one of the "Walking People", rebellious, ragged, nomadic, gypsy-like outcasts—and his natural father is a natural enemy. The bridging of the chasm between father and son is the heart of this story.—from the jacket. [Suggest a different description.]
