Faint edgewear; a very nice copy indeed.; Detective Inspector Ewen Gilbride and his wife Frances, both keen balletomanes, are looking forward to an evening at the Darielle theatre where Sarne Saxilby is to dance Giselle. The first short ballet is over and people drift off to the bar leaving Ewen and Frances in pleasant anticipation of the treat to come. But then Lucian Darielle, pale and shaking, bursts into their box: “My dear Gilbride! Thank God you’re here! It’s Sarne! She’s dead in her dressing room! There’s a knife in her back!”

Includes an introduction by the author on her unpublished manuscripts, entitled ‘Wasted Words – or Good Experience.’

Originally written in the 1950s, this is the first publication of Death Goes Dancing. ; This author enjoyed by Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DE Stevenson email discussion group. Image is actual copy on offer.

Faint edgewear and cover creases. A very nice copy. ; When David and Elinor Gray and their 18-year old niece, Rose, join a Blue Dragon Tour to Italy, they were looking forward to spring sunshine on the Mediterranean coast and had no premonition that the holiday would bring suspicion, fear and the horror of murder. Originally written in the late 1950s, this is the first publication of 'Death Goes to Italy'. We thought some of the descriptions of 'character types' on the tour were entertaining.; This author enjoyed by Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DE Stevenson email discussion group.

Elsie and Mairi Go to War : Two Extraordinary Women on the Western Front, ATKINSON, Diane
3 7217 ATKINSON, Diane Elsie and Mairi Go to War : Two Extraordinary Women on the Western Front
Softcover; Trade PB Pegasus Books: NY; 2010; Very Good+ 
An unread copy received with slight edgewear and light soil marks on top edge.; "When they met at a motorcycle club in 1912, Elsie Knocker was a thirty year-old motorcycling divorcee and Mairi Chisholm was a brilliant eighteen-year old mechanic, living at home borrowing tools from her brother. Theirs was to become one of the most extraordinary stories of the First World War.

In 1914, they roared off to London 'to do their bit', and within a month they were in the thick of things in Belgium driving ambulances to distant military hospitals. Frustrated by the number of men dying of shock in the back of their vehicles, they set up their own first-aid post on the front line in the village of Pervyse, near Ypres, risking their lives working under sniper fire and heavy bombardment for months at a time." ; ''Elsie, a trained nurse and midwife, and eighteen-year-old Mairi, formed part of an ambulance corps which went out to Belgium in the early days of the war; they became the only women to work permanently within shouting distance of the front line at their first aid post in the little Belgian town of Pervyse. Working independently, outside military organisations, their experience of the war was probably unique among women.''- Tanya I. author of the '20th Century Vox' blog. "This is a terrific book about two brave & determined women who made a great difference to so many wounded men under the most difficult circumstances."- This title reviewed and recommended by Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DES email discussion group.

A few interior page corners creased, but clean; none loose. ; An omnibus edition of four of the Provincial Lady Diaries originally written from 1930-1940. They are witty portraits of life in a Devonshire village, in London, in the US, and finally at the beginning of World War II.;

Recommended by Holly H. of the ATS and AT email discussion list. "Diary of a Provincial Lady is my favorite book in all the world. This is the book I packed in my hospital bag when I was having a baby! It is absolutely enchanting...perfectly understated...quintessentially country English before the second world war.There is an emotional French governess, an arrogant titled neighbor, the silent husband, a procession of difficult servants, the talkative Vicar's wife, two not-quite-perfect but loveable children, and most of all, the Provincial Lady, who struggles through daily life with an overdrawn account and a much-needed sense of humor. Is there any better novel? 'Answer comes there none,' to quote the Provincial Lady." Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DE Stevenson email discussion group, says "E M Delafield’s Provincial Lady is one of my favourite literary characters."

In this society of women with peripheral men, social life centres round afternoon tea - we could be in Cranford-on-Tweed.
