The Ship of Stars

Sir Arthur Thomas QUILLER-COUCH (1863 - 1944)

What is childhood? For Taffy, the only son of a vicar, it includes prayers, games, and a lot of quality time with his loving family. When Taffy's father receives a post in the north of England and the family has to move, everybody has to make the best of the situation. For the first time, Taffy has friends. He is even taken to a vacation. But things are darker than they seem. There are things that Taffy, as a child, does not comprehend. This book is about the gap between adults and children, about a perfectly imperfect childhood, and, most importantly, about unconditional love and optimism. - Summary by Stav Nisser.
