The three books gathered together as Eustace and Hilda explore a brother and sister’s lifelong relationship. Hilda, the older child, is both self-sacrificing and domineering, as puritanical as she is gorgeous; Eustace is a gentle, dreamy, pleasure-loving boy: the two siblings could hardly be more different, but they are also deeply devoted. This collection includes novella Simonetta Perkins (1925) and short story books The Travelling Grave (1948), The White Wand (1954), Two for the River (1961), Mrs. Carteret Receives (1971).
