As a result, Lisa and her beloved bear become separated as Corduroy ends up locked inside the Laundromat all night. And what do bears do all night in places like this?

Soon, Lisa is sewing Corduroy a pocket of his very own and again all is well in the life of Corduroy. "This merry tale gets added interest from...the setting, a multi-ethnic urban neighborhood, of cuddly Corduroy and his pal Lisa, a black child, and her attractive mother." — Publishers Weekly.

Corduroy Book Description:

Corduroy was first published in 1930. It was followed by Silver Ley in 1931 and The Cherry Tree in 1932. Together they form a trilogy that has been described as 'the classic account of a twentieth-century Englishman's conversion to rural life'. In Corduroy the author's experiences as a farm apprentice in Suffolk are described. The tone is affectionate, humourous and not in the least patronizing. At times there is an elegiac strain not dissimilar to Edward Thomas. The three books constitute a threnody for, what was then, a vanishing, pre-mechanized way, of farming and rural life.

Marriage takes hard work. Daily life can take its toll on even a successful marriage. And when one of the parties commits adultery, the effect on a marriage can be devastatingand final. But it does not have to be. Author Hannah Brodies Corduroy is the true story of love and faith bound together beneath Gods gaze. Young love, starry-eyed and rose-rimmed, turned sinister and dark when vows were shattered and trust broken. The promise of a married life of blissful togetherness was torn to shreds by a prolonged marital affair. Brodie tells the story of a young wife who just wouldnt let go, even when everything and everyone around her were shouting and telling her to get out. It is also the story of a nave and decent young man driven to breaking his solemn vows and his wifes heart through lust and deceit. Corduroy shows how a wife, through Christs eternal grace, continued to believe and trust God would restore her marriage, her husband, and her love, and how a man finally found redemption and grace. In Corduroy, you will learn infidelity does not have to mean the death of a marriage. Follow a couple who made their way out of the deepest valley and found a renewed passion and love through Christ. It takes work, but you can find this renewal through Christ as well.
