Read full description of the books:



This was a lovely and poignant turn of the century novel with a hint of a darker mystery at it's core. I must confess, I was a little bit taken aback by how much I enjoyed this. At first I was waffling between giving it four and five stars, as I found some of the descriptions of church architecture a bit tedious at times, but the ending swayed me towards giving it the higher rating. I'm feeling a little bit emotional today, so I'm sure that also had some impact on the way the ending moved me. In any case, this is a lovely, quietly powerful tale of a small town in mid 19th-century Dorset. This is definitely not my usual fare, as there was no hint of the supernatural (unless you count "talking" church tower arches), but there was enough strangeness and darkness sprinkled throughout the sweetness and light that kept the atmosphere just sepulchral enough to make this an evocative read for me.

Read information about the author

Ebook The Nebuly Coat read Online! John Meade Falkner, the son of a country cleryman, was born in 1858. After taking his degree at Oxford, he went to Newcastle-upon-Tyne as a private tutor to the sons of Andrew Noble. When they had grown up he stayed on with the family, and entered the firm where Sir Andrew worked. He travelled a great deal for the firm, particularly to the Balkans, helping to export warships and armaments, for which he received many decorations from appreciative foreign governments.

Meade Falkner was a great collector of books, and an expert palaeographer - he even received a medal from the Pope for this. He was a benefactor to libraries, not only in England, but also to the Vatican library in Rome. He loved the small Cotswold town of Burford which it was said of in 1970 that it owed its then present state of preservation to his generosity. He was buried in its churchyard after his death in 1932.

He published guide books, historical essays, and some poetry, but his best work was in his novels. He wrote four, but only published three as he lost one while on a train. Of these, Moonfleet, his best adventure story, was made into a feature film.
