Genome: [r4 Bd=19700518]

by MRS CRAIK adapted for radio in 10 episodes by RAY HANDY

This is the perfect Victorian novel, with all the characteristics that readers of the period would expect to find. And the story itself could scarcely fail to win approval in a society in which the simple virtues were so unquestioningly accepted

The novel is set in the West Midlands in the early years of the last century: ' Norton Bury ' in the story is Tewkesbury in real life. It was the period just before the Reform Bill: there was much unrest, and poverty and revolutionary ideas were germinating. 1: John Halifax arrives in Norton Bury and a lasting friendship is formed
