A new copy received with faint edgewear. This edition, one of the Furrowed Middlebrow imprints, has an introduction by Alexander McCall Smith. ; With husband Tim stationed in Egypt and her children at boarding-school, Hester Christie--affectionately known as "Mrs. Tim" finds herself at loose ends, until her friend Grace takes her at her word and finds her a job with the formidable Erica Clutterbuck, who has opened a new hotel in the Scottish Borders. Highly recommended.
; Recommended by Holly H. of the ATS, AT and DES email discussion lists. " In the third in the series about Mrs. Tim and her family, Hester unwillingly finds temporary employment through the machinations of her dear friend Grace. At Tocher House, a hotel in the Scottish border country, we meet Erica Clutterbuck, surely one of the most unusual characters to grace the pages of English literature. In Hester’s ongoing diary you will meet up again with Tony Morley and many other dear friends, old and new.." Also reviewed and recommended by Claire author of 'The Captive Reader'
