Spine sunned, covers creased and edgeworn, white back cover a bit soiled. Inside covers and pages light brown with darker edges (seen before in this edition), page edges a bit soiled; inside pages clean. No binding problems but we have found this edition should be handled with care or the binding glue can give way. ; 8 This edition has a wonderful new foreword by DES explaining how she came to write the delightful four part series. In the fourth Mrs.Tim novel, the Christie children are growing up and Mrs. Tim finds a home in Old Quinings for their summer holidays, while Mr. Tim is stationed in Africa. Mrs.Timís new friends (and not so friendly new acquaintances including a despicable landlord of a perfect cottage) are characterized by the pen of a remarkable writer in the most delightful fashion.
; Recommended by Holly H. of the ATS, AT and DES email discussion lists. "DE Stevensonís characters couldnít possibly be more real or more fascinating. This post-war novel is must reading." Also reviewed and recommended by Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading'
