This book is a collection of four short stories written by J. M. Barrie. The stories all involve families that have been affected by the First World War: The first story revolves around an elderly woman with no family who spontaneously "adopts" a man who is about to go to war. The second concerns the relationship between a father and his son who is enlisting as an officer, and the third story follows an elderly man with dementia as he's trying to make sense of the changes that are happening around him. The fourth and last story centres on a father trying to move on after his son's death. These masterful and thought-provoking tales are highly recommended for fans of the short story form, and are not to be missed by collectors of Barrie's work. Sir James Matthew Barrie (1860 - 1937) was a Scottish writer and dramatist, most famous for being the creator of the classic children's story "Peter Pan". Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
