In The High Valley by Susan Coolidge is the second book in the Clover Carr Chronicles. It is equally as enchanting as the previous Carr Family stories.
The circle is closed as we hear about the fortunes and fates of the now grown up Carr children.
Part of the story is set in England, in Devon around the Bideford and Clovelly areas which I am familiar with, having holidayed there as a child. The familiarity with the area meant that I was able to clearly ‘see’ the setting.
Clover by Susan Coolidge is a wonderful children’s historical novel and the first book in the Clover Carr Chronicles. It continues on from where the Carr Family series finished.
Clover is just as enchanting as the previous novels. Clover is the sister down from Katy. She is quieter but just as kind and good hearted.
The book moves from the family home to the mountains as Clover offers to look after her younger sibling who is in ill health, needing the fresh mountain air. Here, we see Clover blossom.
