This is, in fact, overtly stated in F&H, towards the end - I think on 
Laurel's train; Polly says something about not understanding and Tom says "I 
sent you enough books about it."  So yes, there must be something specific 
about "Henrietta's House" that "The Little White Horse" doesn't have, in 
this context.

Until the sky falls on our heads...
