A treat for January



If you follow Scott’s blog, you will know already that in January, Dean Street Press are to publish more Furrowed Middlebrow books. Fans of D E Stevenson will be delighted that her ‘Mrs Tim’ books are among them. I’ve read several of these already and am slightly ambivalent about them, finding Mrs Tim rather a snob. I’ve been sent an e-book of Mrs Tim Carries On, which I haven’t read and look forward to because it’s about wartime.

The other book now on my iPad is Alice by Elizabeth Eliot, an author I’d not previously heard of. Reports later but I may be saving these for a cosy Christmas read.
