Foxfire

Foxfire

A captivating story of adventure and romance during the Great Depression, from the bestselling author of Katherine. ‘Anya Seton takes us into other worlds, making us live for a few hours on a grand scale’ (Women’s Journal)

Amanda Lawrence is a charming, sheltered socialite in the post-Depression New York of the 1930s. But when she falls in love with Jonathan Dartland, a part-Apache mining engineer, she decides to leave her privileged life behind. Amanda is infatuated with Dart’s strength and self-reliance, but she has nothing and nobody to guide her when she follows him to Lodestone.

Foxfire is the story of a beautiful New York girl, desperately seeking a happy marriage in the played-out mining towns of the arid Arizona desert. It was adapted for the screen and released in 1955 starring Jane Russell and Jeff Chandler.

ANYA SETON (19040-1990) was the author of 10 bestselling historical novels: Dragonwyk, My Theodosia, The Turquoise, The Hearth & Eagle, Foxfire, Katherine, Avalon, The Winthrop Woman, Devil Water and Green Darkness.

Reviews

Miss Seton's enthusiasm for both character and period is infectious
Daily Telegraph
Anya Seton takes us into other worlds, making us live for a few hours on a grand scale
Women's Journal
Perhaps the greatest gifts Anya Seton brings to her historical novels are the zest of her narrative, the life she breathes into the most insignificant characters, and the atmosphere of the era she evokes around them
Books and Bookmen
Wonderful historical novels
