More Jane Shaw

highlandholidaydw

The Caroline and Sara books
Breton Holiday, later reissued as Breton Adventure
Bernese Adventure, previously published as Bernese Holiday
Highland Holiday, never reprinted after the early editions.

Clear?
It’s so long since I read these books that I’d forgotten what fun they are. If you wonder how I managed a picture with one hand, I didn’t; I already had it on file.

I’ve also read Queen Lucia and Miss Mapp by E F Benson. This is a time for old favourites only.

I love the Lucia and Mapp series, too.
They never fail me.
What a beautiful wrapper! I've not read Highland Holiday.

I've just finished Major Benjy, the not very good sequel. It was bearable though.
Highland Holiday is very scarce. Like most of my hard to get Jane Shaws, it came from Australia.

I 'looked inside' Major Benjy and decided it wasn't for me. I did read Lucia on Holiday when it was very cheap for the Kindle. As you say, bearable but not very good.
That's a pretty looking book. Pleased you are managing okay! Don't go out while it's icy and snowy! x
I'm very lucky to have that book, see above.

No ice or snow here, thank goodness. I'm nervous of a fall if I go out; hope this won't be a long term effect.
Lucky indeed :)

I'm sure it won't be a long term effect. Go out on a sunny dry, none icy day and you'll soon revert to normal :)
That's a beautiful edition Barbara and not one I have ever read or seen. Well done you!
*feels smug*
I paid a bit for it, mind.
