1 7163 SCARLETT, Susan [Noel Streatfeild] Babbacombe's
Softcover Greyladies: Edinburgh; c1941, 2014; As New 
A lovely book with faint edgewear; looks unread.; 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.; Image is one of actual copies on offer.

This one was originally published in 1940. 'When Marda undertakes to look after the recently orphaned 17-year-old ward of blind ex-racing driver James Longford, she expects to find a sad and subdued schoolgirl. Instead she meets young American Shirley Kay, self-assured, chic and charming - and a minx. Then there is James himself. After the accident that left him blind, he has shut himself away from the world with only a repressed butler and a formidable cook to look after him. How can Marda help a man who refuses to listen to music, hates the smell of flowers and never leaves the house, to find pleasure in life again? And is Shirley going to be a help or a hindrance?'; Image is one of actual copies on offer.

4 7155 STREATFEILD, Noel Parson's Nine
Softcover Greyladies: Edinburgh; c1932, 2014; As New 
The story of a saintly vicar, his more practical wife and their nine children in a country vicarage before, during and after the First World War.

When Esdras, with his robust biblical quotations for every occasion - not always appreciated, and his brothers Tobit and Sirach go off to boarding school, Miss Crosby, a governess striving for women’s emancipation, arrives to teach the younger children; clever Judith, home-loving Esther and twins Susanna and Baruch. But we know that the childhood idyll cannot last, that the cataclysm is approaching. For a family of nine children in their teens and twenties can hardly hope to come through the Great War unscathed. But tragedy is met with stoicism and courage, indeed is barely mentioned, and lives are picked up and resumed in a very different post-war world.

Noel Streatfeild was herself the daughter of the vicarage, aged 18 when war was declared, and as her own war work volunteered in a hospital kitchen, wrote and put on plays in aid of the Red Cross, and left home to be a munitions worker at Woolwich Arsenal. Parson’s Nine is her second novel, originally published in 1932.; A lovely as new copy.

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.'
