THE LOST TRAVELLER.
Edition: First US printing.
New York: The Viking Press, 1950. Hardcover first edition - The author's second novel, published 15 years after her classic first novel, "Frost in May."" Opening in 1914, and set against the background of the First World War, Clara experiences the confusions of adolescence. Then tragedy strikes and her childhood comes to an end as she realises that neither parents nor her faith can help her. Although each is a complete novel in itself, "The Lost Traveller" is the first in a trilogy sequel to White's first novel "Frost in May." Together these form a portrait of a young girl's journey to adulthood. The trilogy continues with "The Sugar House" and "Beyond the Glass." Rather uncommon in the hardcover first edition. 312 pp.
