Good Bye Mr Chips

by James Hilton

This wonderful heart rendering tale, tells the life story of Mr Chipping.  As an old man, twice retired, he looks back on his life as he changed from a green schoolmaster to the most beloved teacher at Brookfield, an English public school for boys, known affectionately as Mr Chips.  Through hardship and war, love and tragedy Mr Chips was Brookfield, a man in a shabby robe always ready with a jest and a man who considered all his students the children he and his wife never had.
