3 1840 STEVENSON, D.E. [Dorothy Emily] Fair Miss Fortune, The
Softcover; Trade PB Greyladies: Edinburgh; 2011; New 
A new book.; Written in the 1930's but never before published, this edition contains letters concerning the book between the author and her agent. We recommend reading the letters after reading the novel as they contain 'spoilers'.

Jane Fortune causes a stir when she arrives in Dingleford to open a tearoom. Charles and Harold both fall for the newcomer, but her behaviour seems to vary wildly Ė she encourages first one then the other and at other times barely recognises them. A warm-hearted romance of British village life.; This title reviewed and recommended by Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DES email discussion group.

10 7384 STEVENSON, D.E. [Dorothy Emily] Mrs. Tim Carries On
Softcover; Trade PB Dean Street Press: London; c1941, 2019; New 
A new book. This edition, one of the Furrowed Middlebrow imprints, has an introduction by Alexander McCall Smith.; This delightful second book in the wonderful Mrs. Tim series details how Hester and her family carry on through World War II. This title has always been the most scarce of the four book Mrs. Tim series (perhaps due to wartime restrictions). We are very pleased to be able to offer this new reprint to fellow DE Stevenson admirers. Highly recommended.; "There is so much War News in News Bulletins, in Newspapers, and so much talk about the war that I do not intend to write about it in my diary. Indeed my diary is a sort of escape from the war . . . though it is almost impossible to escape from the anxieties which it brings."
Bestselling author D.E. Stevenson's charming fictional alter-ego, Hester Christie--or "Mrs. Tim" as she is affectionately known to friends of her military husband--was first introduced to readers in Mrs. Tim of the Regiment, published in 1932. In 1941, Stevenson brought Mrs. Tim back in this delightful sequel, to lift spirits and boost morale in the early days of World War II.

Reviews from earlier editions; "She admirably preserves her lightness of touch, with a tinge of melancholy added, which perfectly suits the mood of 1940."-Glasgow Herald
"This is not merely a war book to which cheerfulness keeps breaking in, it is a book of cheerfulness from which the war cannot be kept out . . . Major Tim's amazing escape from Dunkirk is high drama superbly handled, and her word pictures are both lifelike and lively."_-Manchester Evening News Cover matches stock image.

11 7388 STEVENSON, D.E. [Dorothy Emily] Mrs. Tim Christie

Sunned spine faintly creased, covers very lightly creased and edgeworn, white rear panel a bit soiled and yellowed.

We have found this edition should be handled with care or the binding glue can easily give way.; Originally published as "Mrs. Tim of the Regiment"; containing "Mrs. Tim of the Regiment" and "Golden Days". It has also been published as "Mrs. Tim". This edition has a wonderful new foreword by DES explaining how she came to write the delightful four part series. There is a picture of the author on the back cover showing her at work on her couch, with a writing desk balanced on her knees. This was her preferred method of writing.; Recommended by Holly H. of the ATS, AT, and DES email discussion lists. "This is the first in the series about Mrs. Tim and her family, the diaries of an Officerís wife, a most amusing chronicle. Hester is an endlessly fascinating woman, fascinating because of her delightful commentaries on everyday life and her special style of finding humor. Her efforts to flee the unwanted attentions of a fabulously wealthy senior officer are pure fun and the beginnings of a true friendship. Keen insight and delightful wit punctuate every page. Even without the enchanting June interlude in the Highlands, this would be a perfect novel." Image is actual copy on offer.
