Hilda and her Doll.

Hilda and her Doll.

Hilda played happily in her Greneda, West Indies home, unaware that she was soon to be sent thousands of miles away, to France, to school. Her father felt the experience of "finding her level" would be good for her character, but for a long time she was miserable at school. Her classmates teased her for the wonderful gift her nurse had given her, a beautiful handmade West Indian doll. The international flavour of this book keeps it from being a Sunday School tract.



The Girl on the Outside.

Based on the integration of Central High School at Little Rock in 1957 and on the brave actions of Elizabeth Eckford and Grace Lorch. Told alternately from each girl's point of view, the portraits show the range of opinion in each community.
