Synopses & Reviews
Two Newbery Honor -- winning series from the '50s and '60s get new life in Harcourt Young Classic/Odyssey dual editions. Mary GrandPre contributes new cover art for Elizabeth Enright's Gone-Away Lake (1957) and Return to Gone-Away (1961), with the original b&w interior illustrations by Beth and Joe Krush. The novels revolve around cousins who explore an apparently abandoned summer colony and discover two elderly people who have secretly returned to the homes of their youth. The storytelling reflects Enright's characteristic humor and her ability to imagine adventures that readers would long for in real life.
One of those rare and wonderful books to be read and enjoyed and savored.and#8212;Chicago Tribune
"Few writers can equal, and none surpass, Elizabeth Enright in absorbing narrative and sensitive characterization." and#8212;Cleveland Press
