Novels 1857-1876

In Scenes of Clerical Life, Mary Ann describes 'sweet spring' in old Nuneaton (renamed 'Milby') - the closest manufacturing town to her former home at Griff:

"... the sweet spring came to Milby notwithstanding: the elm-tops were red with buds; the churchyard was starred with daisies; the lark showered his love-music on the flat fields; the rainbows hung over the dingy town, clothing the very roofs and chimneys in a strange transfiguring beauty."
