The Girl of the Woods

 

 

The Girl of the Woods was published in 1942. From the Grosset & Dunlap jacket flap:

Built around the courageous story of two young people who braved scorn and unhappiness to remain true to an ideal...Revel Radcliffe, in despair at the news of his father's approaching second marriage, seeks solace in the woods he loves. There he finds a young girl, Margaret Weldon, whose sweet friendliness comforts him.

They are separated...

How they finally meet again in happiness makes
a delightful, warm-hearted story.
