The Houses of the Eagle

The Houses of the Eagle by Mary Grant BruceThe Houses of the Eagle

This was one of Mary Grant Bruce’s favourite books, and it is one of her best.

Although set in a Victorian seaside town, this story features a Tasmanian family.  It was written while Mary stayed at Port Elliot in South Australia.  The youngest boy, John, is a portrait of Mary’s son Pat.  He is shown as a sensitive and brilliant child, who loves poetry and mischief in about equal proportions.
