Throwback Thursday: Gaunt's Daughter


Gaunt's Daughter, copyright 1957. First edition, Viking Press. Scholastic Book Services Edition, 1964. A very good year for yellow headbands.

 Cordelia hasn't seen her famous actor-father since she was a little girl. She feels she can never, never forgive him for deserting her mother. 

But the theater is part of Cordelia's heritage. At seventeen, she is already a promising actress. And now she is offered her first big part ... in a play that will star her father!
