Biografia breu
Barbara Willard came from an acting family. Her father was Edmund Willard, a British actor known for his Shakespearean roles, and her great-uncle was E.S. (Edward Smith) Willard, a Victorian stage actor. Barbara herself originally began a career as an actress, but abandoned it in her early twenties. Beginning in 1930, she wrote several novels for adults before turning to children's literature. Her most famous work was the Mantlemass Chronicles, a series of historical novels spanning the 15th to 17th centuries, published between 1970 and 1988. One of the books, The Iron Lily (1973), won the annual Guardian Children's Fiction Prize. The entire series was critically acclaimed and ensured her a lasting place in children's historical fiction. In 1956, Willard moved to a new home on the edge of Ashdown Forest in Sussex, an area she loved. It inspired many of her children's books, which she imbued with local history, customs and dialect. She also was elected to the forest's Board of Conservators in 1975, and served in that position for 10 years.

Young Simon, recently and tragically orphaned, becomes a scribe in the following of the exiled Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Becket. The uncertainty of the tumultuous years leading to the infamous cathedral slaying is heightened by Simon's separation from his twin Edmund, who is in the service of King Henry II.

Picked it up in a thrift store cuz it looked cute enough, and it was. Just a nice little story. A little dreamy, about a friendship maturing as the children grow up just a little. Limpet realizes he doesn't need to shadow Jill, and so he decides he's going to be his own person and use his real name, Lambert. And Jill learns to be more responsible and less bossy. I wish I knew what book this is the sequel to (if any) because the past events that are often referred to sound interesting.

If, by any chance, this is a what's the name of that book" mystery, the St. Bernard is named Brandy, his mistress is Mrs. Remnant, and they live in a trailer between the children's family. The fathers are a farmer and a nurseryman. The premise of the plot starts with entering a slogan contest for Fullowag dog biscuits, to try to win a South Seas island."… (més)
