Jeffreys' brow darkened. He glanced down at his own shabby garments, and then at Scarfe's neat suit.

"I've got flannels," he said.

"Flannels! Why don't you play, then? Do you think you won't look well in flannels? He would, wouldn't he, Scarfe?"

*****

Great story about a young man who tries to overcome a tragic incident in which he was at fault. Well written, with compelling characters, this books is a good read for adults and young people alike. Shame no one writes stories like this any more.
