A new book received with faint edgewear. One of the Furrowed Middlebrow imprints. This new edition includes an introduction by social historian Elizabeth Crawford.; In Bramton Wick, the setting of Elizabeth Fair's cheerful debut novel, tensions and resentments--not to mention romance--roil beneath the polite interactions of its charming and eccentric residents.

There's upper crust Lady Masters, taking the good things for granted but thoroughly cowed by her gardener. There's Gillian Cole, a war widow, and her sister Laura, for whom romance may (or may not) be in the offing. There's Miss Selbourne and "Tiger" Garrett, who met driving ambulances during the war (the first one, though Miss Garrett does get them confused). There's Major Worthy, who is quite energetic for an invalid. And there's the three Misses Cleeve, who are "all remarkably like toads" and who have a casual relationship with the truth.; Author biography: "Elizabeth Mary Fair was born in 1908 and brought up in Haigh, a small village in Lancashire, England. There her father was the land agent for Haigh Hall, then occupied by the Earl of Crawford and Balcorres, and there she and her sister were educated by a governess. After her father's death, in 1934, Miss Fair and her mother and sister removed to a small house with a large garden in the New Forest in Hampshire. From 1939 to 1944, she was an ambulance driver in the Civil Defence Corps, serving at Southampton, England; in 1944 she joined the British Red Cross and went overseas as a Welfare Officer, during which time she served in Belgium, India, and Ceylon. Miss Fair's first novel, Bramton Wick, was published in 1952 and received with enthusiastic acclaim as 'perfect light reading with a dash of lemon in it . . .' by Time and Tide.
