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.
