The author was the sister of John Buchan. This is the sequel to 'The Proper Place' but can be read on its own. It is the tale of daily life in the small coast town of Fife, featuring Lady Jane and her daughter Nicole.

“To you and to me this is the day of small things – Who said that? Someone in the Bible, wasn’t it? And the small things keep you going wonderfully: the kindness of friends; the fact of being needed; nice meals; books; interesting plays; the funny people in the world; the sea and the space and the wind – not very small, are they, after all?”
Old friends and new in the Borders and Fife: Nicole and her mother, Lady Jane Rutherfurd; Mrs. Heggie; Mrs. Jackson; and Barbara Burt, now Mrs. Andrew Jackson, of Rutherfurd. This edition now out of print.
; A new copy.; Recommended by Geraldine H., Susan D., and Lulu D. of the DES email discussion group. 'Her novels are all on similar themes - domestic stories about family & relationships with a lot of humour & always some gentle romance. ...Her books are comforting but not saccharine, always alive to the realities of life.'- Lyn B. author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DoveGrey and DE Stevenson email discussion groups.
