Summary
First published in 1932, this classic satirical novel tells the story of sensible Flora Poste, who is orphaned at age 19. Leaving the city to go live with relatives in deepest Sussex at the aptly named Cold Comfort Farm, she meets the gloomy and eccentric Starkadder family, headed by reclusive Aunt Ada Doom. Flora's penchant for practicality and organization soon shakes things up. -- Description by Dawn Towery
