Under the Mendips

by Emma Marshall

Life at Fair Acres Manor, an old English homestead nestling under the shelter of the Mendip Hills, is beautifully sketched in the opening chapters. "Joyce," the pretty heroine, just budding into womanhood, her weak and extravagant brother " Melville," just home from Oxford, the little lame boy "Piers," Mrs. Falconer, the English mother, and the dogs "Nip" and "Pip," all unite to form a charming picture of rustice peace and happiness. The aged Hannah More is a conspicuous character in the tale, and the closing scenes are taken from the Bristol riots of the autumn of 1831. A healthy story for young girls, teaching an excellent lesson.

As our author of the day, we chat with Joshua about the inspiration behind his book, the immense amount of research that went into it and whether or not the human mind is still evolving.
