Item description for Shepherd's Hill by Charles Kingsley...
Overview This novel is about the people of a farming community in the Shaker country of upstate New York, the people who live there and the people who visit. It is a story with a distinctly Jewish character. The story covers almost half a century, beginning in the years before World War II. Occasionally interspersed with the narrative are fables that provide insights on such issues as light and darkness, life and death, pain and suffering, separation and isolation. And as the story progresses, a figure in the background gradually emerges as the Good Shepherd, the Overseer-the dominant character of the story.

More About Charles Kingsley
Charles Kingsley (1819 - 1875) led quite a wild life at university but, in 1842, he followed in his father's footsteps and was ordained as a priest. He was a Christian Socialist and spent his life campaigning for such things as better education for girls, and improving the living conditions of the working class. Victorian society was very inflexible and Kingsley was soon branded as a radical. His patriotic attitude to the Crimean War (1854 - 6), made him acceptable again and he became Chaplain to Queen Victoria. Later, royal influence led to his appointment as a Professor of History at Cambridge University. During his 'out of favour' years he was a devoted priest in Hampshire and put his beliefs into practice. His work as a parish priest and his lecture tours as a Christian Socialist, always came first, leaving his writing to take second place.
Charles Kingsley was born in 1819 and died in 1875.
