3 7377 BRANCH, Susan A Fine Romance: Falling in Love with the English Countryside
Hardcover Spring Street Publishing: MA; 2013; First Edition; First Printing 260 pages Color Illustrations: Near Fine in Near Fine dust wrapper 
A lovely copy of a delightful book with an attached red ribbon page marker. Spine ends faintly bumped, one corner very lightly bumped. Unclipped dustwrapper faintly edgeworn.; The author presents a lovingly written (using a font made from her own printing) and illustrated account of her two months exploring the English countryside with the love of her life. "The first time I met my darling Joe we discovered we both had the same dream -- of taking a voyage to England on an ocean liner. To celebrate our 25th anniversary, we did just that, crossing the Atlantic on the Queen Mary II and spending two months wandering the English countryside. I kept a diary of the journey, and when we returned home to Martha's Vineyard, I put it all together in this hand-written book.

A fine Romance begins with the story of how Joe and I found each other and fell in love. Then we're off -- on a quest for serendipity and discovery. Join us as we walk ancient footpaths over hill & dale, along winding hedgerows to castles, cottages, romantic gardens, tearooms, antique stores and pubs. We'll take you through historic homes such as Jane Austen's house and Beatrix Potter's Hill Top Farm; from Kent to the Yorkshire Dales to the Cotswolds and more. You'll find recipes, maps, and travel tips."; " Each page is a piece of art -- filled with paintings, pictures, and her handwritten and unique thoughts about everything from pubs to Beatrix Potters Hill Top Farm. It is both whimsical and a visual tour de force of art and words." HIghly recommended. Published @ $26.95

A lovely unread copy.; This historical novel, set during the English Civil War in an Oxfordshire village, features the Haslewood family. "In the manor house, Margaret Haslewood and her twin children wait for news of her husband Robert, who has gone to fight for the cause of Parliament. At the hearth of wise and gentle Froniga, whose skill in healing and clarity of moral vision brings life and vigor to the Romani community, and in the painter's brush of young Francis Leyland, who puts his life in the service of the king, Elizabeth Goudge weaves a tale of enduring insight into what makes us feel at home in the world, and the forces that threaten to tear our homes apart." The publisher of this edition added a note that says in part: First written in 1958, this novel "includes many passages that display oppressive attitudes in matters of race relations. ...many Romani people still face discrimination today. We believe that offering this book to readers as Elizabeth Goudge wrote it allows us to see English literary culture in 1958 in a way that would be obscured were we to alter the text. Justice must be based on truth."; "A rich, long panorama of England in the time of Charles I, when Cavalier and Puritan strove for the mastery of the realm. The story opens with the appearance of Francis Leyland in the little village of Flowercote." Recommended by Charlotte K. of the DES email discussion group, Sandi M. and Amy S. of the E Goudge email discussion group and Anne C. of the AT and EG email discussion lists.

Babbacombe's, SCARLETT, Susan [Noel Streatfeild]
19 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).
