The Railway Children PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Railway Children free pdf Peter, Roberta and Phyllis' lives change overnight when suddenly Father is taken away by two strangers. They move from the comfort of their London residence to a modest country cottage, and find that Mother is no longer able to entertain them as she must write slavishly to support the family. Once fairly wealthy, they are now 'poor' and must adapt accordingly. But with this change comes more freedom than they could ever have dreamt of, as they learn to entertain themselves and forge their own moral code. So begins a tale of blissful independence and adventures aplenty with the railway line at the bottom of their garden becoming central to the children's lives. Not only do the railway line, its station and staff offer the trio a world of new friendships - with pride of place going to Perks, the porter - it also introduces them to the man who will help right the terrible wrong that blights their life. Illustrated by C E Brock, with an Afterword by Anna South.

About E. Nesbit

Edith Nesbit was born in 1858 and, like her fictional characters in The Railway Children, her middle-class family was one whose fortunes declined. After surviving a tough and nomadic childhood she met and married her husband, Hubert Bland, in 1880 whilst pregnant with the couple's first child. Financial hardship was to dog Nesbit again when Bland's business failed, forcing her to write to support their burgeoning family. She only later in life focused on writing the children's stories for which she became so well known, including The Story of The Treasure Seekers (1899), The Wouldbegoods (1901), Five Children and It (1902) and The Railway Children (1906). She died in 1924.
