A lovely new book. This edition includes a Foreword by Lady Stewartby, the author's great-niece and Bad Bill's daughter, and an introduction to the Peeblesshire locations where Anna Buchan was so very much at home.; Kirsty Gilmour, 'an unattached spinster' settles into a country cottage in Tweedside and along with three children who come to stay discover that summer and autumn are all too short.' Pink sugar' is all the little pleasures that add to their way of life alongside the River Tweed. This edition now out of print.; Kirsty Gilmour ("I'm 30 but you shouldn't make me say it out loud,") makes a home for herself in the Scottish Borders and takes under her wing a gentle old aunt and three motherless children; Barbara, Specky and Bad Bill. Originally written in the 1920s,'Pink Sugar' is full of perfectly drawn characters with old-fashioned values from a vanished world; a world of kindness and good manners, of generosity and self-restraint, and yet a world where poverty, illness and bereavement are just below the surface. In this society of women with peripheral men, social life centres round afternoon tea - we could be in Cranford-on-Tweed.

This title very nicely reviewed and recommended by Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DE Stevenson email discussion group.
