Molesworth, M. L. (n.d.). The Cuckoo Clock. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Chapter 1. THE OLD HOUSE. ?Somewhat back from the village street Stands the old?fashioned country seat.? ONCE upon a time in an old town, in an old street, there stood a very old house. Such a house as you could hardly find nowadays, however you searched, for it belonged to a gone?by time a time now quite passed away. It stood in a street, but yet it was not like a town house, for though the front opened right on to the pavement, the back windows looked out upon a beautiful, quaintly terraced garden, with old trees growing so thick and close together that in summer it was like living on the edge of a forest to be near them; and even in winter the web of their interlaced branches hid all clear view behind.
