    Summary

    "...Coppicing is a traditional method of woodland management which takes advantage of the fact that many trees make new growth from the stump or roots if cut down. In a coppiced wood, young tree stems are repeatedly cut down to near ground level. In subsequent growth years, many new shoots will emerge, and, after a number of years the coppiced tree, or stool, is ready to be harvested, and the cycle begins again..."

    Summary

    "Mentone, 1932. An English schoolgirl stands upon the threshold of womanhood. Her beloved father is dead, her mother cold and distant. Amidst the tinsel glamour and loose morals of the Riviera resorts, who can heal her wounded soul and teach her to love again?

    Starring Douglas Fairbanks as David Harland and introducing Hilary Thorpe as Sarah Wytham, The Healing Fountain is the motion picture event of 1937."

    Hilary Thorpe always said she wanted to be a writer. Reading her first novel, Lord Peter Wimsey finds that some of the characters are surprisingly familiar, particularly the hero, a dark and handsome valet.
