Light spine and cover creases, light edgewear and rubbing, a few smudges to page edges. A nice, previously owned, copy. ; Another publication of previously unpublished very early material from this beloved author. It was probably written in the late 1920s, and foreshadows her later romances and family stories with that little humorous twist of something extra.

Kenneth Leslie, needing money to start a new life in Canada after a broken engagement, answers an advertisement in the Daily Clarion - 'Retired Army Officer offers a large sum of money to a Young Man who wants Adventure. Must be of good appearance and free from dependants.' and finds more than he dreamed of: fishing, art, family skulduggery, rogues, thieves and fisticuffs, friendship and romance.

Also included are four short stories, Moira, The Mulberry Coach, The Secret of the Black Rocks, and The Murder of Alma Atherton, and a novella, Where the Gentian Blooms.; This title currently out of print. Image is actual copy on offer.
