And to this levee repaired all the Penhallows and all the Darks, old and young, to hear Aunt Becky's will read and to have settled, once and for all, the contentious subject of who among them should inherit the old Dark jug - coveted family heirloom... Here follows a year of foreboding and of striving, of settling old romances, of terminating old feuds, of commencing new and fiercer feuds. A succession of family portraits about which are woven a family chronicle of lively interest, verve and suspense. The climax is - what Aunt Becky probably intended." A classic of L. M. Montgomery, written for adults.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Good to Very Good/No Jacket. 8" x 5 1/2".
