Babbacombe's, SCARLETT, Susan [Noel Streatfeild]
251 7163 SCARLETT, Susan [Noel Streatfeild] Babbacombe's
Softcover Greyladies: Edinburgh; c1941, 2014; 262 pages As New 
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.; A lovely book with faint edgewear; looks unread.; Recommended, especially if you enjoy novels set in department stores (we do).Image is one of actual copies on offer.

Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The, SHAFFER, Mary Ann And Annie Barrows
255 7040 SHAFFER, Mary Ann And Annie Barrows Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The
Hardcover The Dial Press: NY; 2008; Second Printing 278 pages Near Fine in Near Fine dust wrapper 
“ I wonder how the book got to Guernsey? Perhaps there is some sort of secret homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers.” January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she’s never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb….

As Juliet and her new correspondent exchange letters, Juliet is drawn into the world of this man and his friends—and what a wonderfully eccentric world it is. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society—born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi when its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island—boasts a charming, funny, deeply human cast of characters, from pig farmers to phrenologists, literature lovers all.

Juliet begins a remarkable correspondence with the society’s members, learning about their island, their taste in books, and the impact the recent German occupation has had on their lives. Captivated by their stories, she sets sail for Guernsey, and what she finds will change her forever.

Written with warmth and humor as a series of letters, this novel is a celebration of the written word in all its guises, and of finding connection in the most surprising ways." Highly recommended. Basis for the film "Guernsey" directed by Mike Newell and featuring Lily James and Matthew Goode.
; Spine ends and two corners lightly bumped. Unclipped dust wrapper very lightly edgeworn. A very nice copy indeed.; Recommended by Linda S, Sharon D., and several members of the DES and AT email discussion groups, including Kristi J., Julie B., Louise D., Laura N. 'My local Book Club loved it so much we talk about a possible trip to Guernsey. Isn't that one of the things a good book will do for us, make us want to see and experience the locale for ourselves'? and Susan D. '...such a wonderful read I can't say enough good things about it. It is full of humour and humanity and decency and love and war and mystery and betrayal and marvellous characters. Oh, and books. It's a quintessential perfect read for any Dessie.'

Cloth binding and matching dw have a wonderful illustration by Robert Ball. ; There was once a stepping stone in the little village of Gillenham.

According to the journal, the stone still kept its magical powers. Professor Pounce stirs up a veritable tempest in a beer mug among the good people of the village when he tries to track down the elusive stone and restore it to the stream.

A nice copy. No spine or cover creases, covers lightly edgeworn, a few faint smudges to page edges. This edition has a short list of discussion questions and a very short biography of the author. ; Basis for the BBC film released in 2003. The first novel by this author, who was best known for '101 Dalmations', written while she lived in the United States in the 1940's. This is one of the most enchanting and unusual coming of age stories. Set in a three-quarters ruined 600-year-old castle in the English countryside, the book is the journal of seventeen-year-old Cassandra. She is teaching herself to write, and does very well indeed at "capturing the castle. " She is growing up amid poverty along with her twenty-one year old sister Rose, her smart younger brother, her stepmother model, Topaz, and her eccentric father, stymied by writer's block for many years. Cassandra candidly chronicles the changes wrought by the arrival of Simon from America, heir to the nearby manor house and their landlord, along with his brother Neil and voluble mother. The devoted and shockingly handsome Stephen (penurious castle help), a charming Vicar, and a greasy photographer from London, round out the characters. Totally engaging...you will love it.; Recommended by Sulie and Holly H. of the DES email discussion group and by J. K. Rowling. Book matches sample image.

Softcover; Mass Market PB Corsair: London; c1963, 2012; 377 pages As New 
Unread copy received with faint edgewear.; The author of the delightful 'I Capture the Castle' provides us with another enchanting novel. Devotees of D.E. Stevenson will smile at the similarities between secretary-housekeeper Jane Minton and many a Stevenson heroine. Jane is warmly welcomed by two brothers, two sisters and a pair of loyal maids to an English country home that is as comfortable as one could wish. Disaster strikes the absentee father, though, giving the opportunity for all five main characters to find their feet in life. It is hard to say which character holds the most compelling (and amusing) story. The steps each sibling and Jane take to make their way in life are wholly engrossing. It is guaranteed the reader will find kinship with Merry, Drew, Clare, Richard or Jane, as each of their adventures is relayed in turn.; Warmly recommended by Holly H., Kristi J., and Tom J. of the AT and DES email discussion lists and by Joan B. of the AT email discussion list.

265 7261 SMITH, Dodie Town in Bloom, The
Hardcover Little, Brown & Company: Boston; 1965; First US Edition 271 pages Good+ 
"A beguiling tale, at once nostalgic and candid about coming of age and the healing effects of time, this 1965 novel reveals much of the author's love of theater in the story of a determined young Lancashire girl arriving in London. Mouse never did fully suit her nickname—tiny she may have been, but timid, never. Within 24 hours of her arrival in the city, she had bluffed her way into an audition at a famous theater, infuriated its forceful young stage director, and amused its kind (if quite amoral) actor-manager. She won, not a part, but at least a toehold as a junior secretary. Soon she has befriended Molly, a baby-faced six-footer, and elegant, ambitious Lilian. Later there was also Zelle—rich, generous, enigmatic, and responsible for an outing to Suffolk village pageant which proved a turning point for them all.
Born near Manchester, Dodie Smith was already bitten by the theater bug when she entered St Paul's Girls School in London, and though she went on to become a remarkably unsuccessful actress, she later became a playwright and novelist of considerable acclaim, beloved for her children's book 'The Hundred and One Dalmatians'. Her first novel, 'I Capture the Castle'—was voted #82 of Britain's 100 best-loved novels as part of the BBC's Big Read—was followed by a string books known for their vivacious style and warm characters."
