Vintage from the 1950s

Vintage The Golden Journey by Agnes Sligh Turnbull, 1955 book club edition. Book is in excellent condition, with no tears, stains or folds, and the original, illustrated jacket cover, but with the name Margaret Pitts written in ink on the inside cover. From the inside jacket cover:

"For all the millions who read The Bishop's Mantle and The Gown of Glory this new novel by Agnes Sligh Turnbull will be pure delight. The setting of the story is a large industrial city in the East, and more particularly the elegant Kirkland home, standing in one of its most favored sections. The cast of characters seems at first to be dominated by the enigmatic figure of James Kirkland, recognized as a man of financial power but unknown to most as the state's political king-maker.

Paul Devereaux, a brilliant young lawyer and an eloquent and persuasive speaker, becomes a frequent visitor at the Kirkland house and is offered an amazing opportunity in politics by his host -- a chance far beyond his years and experience.

At the center of the dramatic events that follow and of the beautiful love story that runs throughout the novel is Anne, Kirkland's only daughter -- one of the most alluring young heroines in modern fiction.

Each of these three is on a journey of self-discovery. For each the journey has its mirages, its changes of direction. What happens to them and to those whose lives cross theirs makes a story of compelling interest that speaks to the heart.

The time is the present; but for the reader there is an even greater immediacy, for the book presents challenging problems of our own day. Mrs. Turnbull writes with the magic of the born storyteller who has a timely and deeply felt theme."


255 pages. Measures 8.5 inches x 6 inches x 1 inches. Published by Houghton Mifflin Company.
