Absolutely delightful! I love D. E. Stevenson's writing and can't wait to read more of her books. Reading it was like finding a lost literary treasure to enjoy. I'm hoping more of her books will be reprinted. First published in 1934, it's a glimpse at a simpler life in the English countryside. Miss Buncle finds herself in need of money when things get tight. She decides to write a story, but feeling she has no imagination, the only thing she can think of to write about is the village she lives in and those around her. Though she changes the names of the village and it's occupants, some of those who find themselves as characters in her book are less than enthusiastic about how they are portrayed (though they easily recognize themselves). They set out to uncover just who among them is "John Smith." Funny, charming, and all together delightful.
