Babbacombe's, SCARLETT, Susan [Noel Streatfeild]
1 7369 SCARLETT, Susan [Noel Streatfeild] Babbacombe's
Softcover; Trade PB Greyladies: Edinburgh; c1941, 2014; 262 pages Near Fine 
A very nice copy with faint edgewear and rubbing.; Her children's books are well known and loved but this author also wrote a dozen 'light romance' novels under the pseudonym Susan Scarlett. This heart-warming romance was originally published in 1941.

Into the heart of the Carson family, close, hard-working and happy, comes their disruptive and selfish cousin Dulcie, with her decidedly cheap values. George and Janet try to make her welcome and treat her as one of their own; they find her work in Babbacombe’s department store where eldest daughter Beth is just beginning her first job in Gowns, but they struggle to make allowances for her outrageous behaviour. For it is Dulcie who takes pleasure in humiliating young Girda at her school concert; it is Dulcie who jealously tries to blight the blossoming romance between Beth and the new man in Cooked Meats, David Babbacombe himself. But then it is not Dulcie, who doesn’t understand kindness and love, who lives happily ever after.; Recommended, especially if you enjoy novels set in department stores (we do).

Softcover; Trade PB Greyladies: Edinburgh; c1942, 2013; 257 pages Near Fine 
A very nice copy with faint edgewear and rubbing.; Her children's books are well known and loved but this author also wrote a dozen 'light romance' novels under the pseudonym Susan Scarlett. This one was originally published in 1942. 'An unworldly young vicar takes into his house a crusty old aunt, his newly orphaned nephew and niece and a young woman to look after them. A bored Lady Bountiful and the stalwart and motherly housekeeper do battle, subtly and not so subtly, and spiteful gossip nearly spoils everything, but luckily, after many storms, there is gold at the end of the rainbow.' Now out-of-print, this is our last copy.; This title reviewed and recommended by Claire author of 'The Captive Reader' blog. Image is of our last copy on offer.
