Summary

Summary

Harding’s Luck tells the exciting story of brave Dickie Harding, a little disabled boy and his many adventures. One day, Dickie accidentally discovers an old magic that allows him to travel into his own past across five hundred years. There he meets Elfrida and Edred Arden (as told in The House of Arden), and together they seek a long-lost treasure. It’s a story of injustice, poverty, deformity, magic, romance, suspense, sacrifice, and eventual triumph over adversity.

The companion volume to The House of Arden, Harding’s Luck was written by the popular and prolific English writer and poet Edith Nesbit (1858–1924), who wrote or collaborated on more than sixty books of children’s literature under the name E. Nesbit. Timeless treasures include The Story of the Treasure Seekers, The Railway Children, Five Children and It, and The Phoenix and the Carpet. Nesbit is considered one of the first modern authors of children’s literature and is credited with helping to move this genre beyond the realm of fantasy and folklore.

Author Bio: E. Nesbit

Edith Nesbit (1858–1924) lived in England and had dreamed of becoming a poet since she was fifteen years old. After her husband fell ill, it was up to her to support her small family. For the next nineteen years, she wrote novels, essays, articles, poems, and short stories; but it was not until 1899, when The Story of the Treasure Seekers was published, that she achieved great success. Her groundbreaking style of depicting realistic, believable children quickly gained a popularity that has lasted for more than a century.
