Comments Ella at the Wells

  • Rosemary Atwell

    I was overjoyed to find an old hardback copy (and a first edition, too) in a treasure house of a shop in Mount Barker a couple of months ago.Whilst Ella isn't my favourite of the Wells heroines (that honour will always belong to Veronica), she is the first Lorna Hill protagonist to come from a lower economic background.

Still attracted to Jane's cousin Nigel, Mariella ca [...]
