A new book received with faint edgewear, pale tan page edges, and some smudges to bottom page edges.; Published in Great Britain as 'Miss Bun, the Baker's Daughter'. This was the first DE Stevenson book submitted to and published by Collins. It was said to be Sir William Collins's favourite DES book and the best he ever read about Scotland and the Scottish people.

Sue Pringle has never met anyone like John Darnay before. A painter who roams the countryside with brush in hand, Darnay is so absorbed in his art that he can barely remember to feed himself-a stark contrast to the practical shopkeepers and shepherds of her tiny village.

Working as his housekeeper allows Sue to observe the eccentric Darnay unnoticed as he goes about his work translating the beautiful Scottish countryside onto canvas... ; 'Another fine story by D. E. Stevenson, most of it set in Scotland, although "Miss Bun" does travel to London and The Netherlands. The British title is an allusion to the card game "Happy Families". Players collect sets of four cards belonging to a family. The Baker's family is composed of Mr., Mrs., Miss, and Master Bun.

"This is a story of Sue Pringle, the daughter of a baker, and her friends, family and employers. It is set between WWI and WWI, and is a complex tale. It includes romance, family conflict, the challenges of learning to know oneself, and much more. It also addresses the English/Scots class system as it was in those years between the wars. Social history, entertainment, and much more. A D. E. Stevenson novel is always a delight.'-Jerri C. of the ATS and AT and DES email discussion groups. Cover matches stock image.
