Girl In A Red River Coat
A domestic issue looms even larger: Peate’s ailing aunt has moved in with her family, and this causes endless irritation for the girl. Girl in a Red River Coat evokes the sights, sounds, and smells of a vanished era. Peate’s character develops and grows over the course of the book. Her attempts to get her aunt to move out eventually bear fruit, but not quite in the way Peate thought they would.
Shoreline is to be commended for making Girl in a Red River Coat, originally published by Clarke, Irwin & Company in 1970, available to a new generation of readers. mRb
