What a wonderful book.
Lettice Helston flees London after her marriage breaks down intending to call on her friend Dorrie.
An unexpected detour finds her in the quaint village of Steffan Green.
There are some wonderful characters, set in the 1930's.
A delightful account of life then told with humour and charm.
I loved it!

4.5 stars. Richmal Crompton had a delightful formula for her novels, at least from what I can tell after having read two of the forty-one novels she wrote for adults (countless more books she wrote for children). Her characters are so sympathetic; the plot is always wrapped up in a neat little package, ending on a high, expectant note, leaving one wanting just one more chapter.
