Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Vivid and exciting adventures are paired with fascinating details of nineteenth-century life in this historical drama by beloved author Elizabeth Goudge. Written with her characteristic poignancy, humor, and charm, GREEN DOLPHIN STREET brings readers on a journey from the natural beauty of the British seacoast to the mountains and forests of New Zealand. When Marianne Le Patourel meets William Ozanne in the 1830s on an island in the English Channel, she sets her heart on him. Her sister Marguerite, however, falls in love with him too. When his Navy career is cut short, William eventually settles in New Zealand and writes to Mr. Le Patourel to ask for Marguerite's hand in marriage - but in his nervousness he pens the wrong name in his letter. It is Marianne who arrives aboard the sailing ship Green Dolphin. And so begins this sweeping novel that takes the characters on dramatic adventures from childhood through old age, on land and at sea, and from the Channel Islands to the New Zealand frontier and back again. -- Back cover.
