That is one gorgeous cover design! And the book sounds intriguing too.


It is lovely, and it has French flaps, too!


Oh, I'm so happy to see someone else knows about Jane Duncan! I discovered her a long while ago, probably in the early 1990's and read all her books that I could find at the Library. Very unique. My favorite was "My Friends, George and Tom" or so I recall from this distance in time. Perhaps it's time for me to re-read her again..I recall she also wrote under another name, and had another series of novels. You can find more about her on-line.


Oops, I see you already gave us a wonderful link...I didn't read all the way to the end of your post.


Glad to hear you enjoyed her books so much, Sara; I'm looking forward to reading "...the Miss Boyds".


Oh, I'd wondered about renewing my acquaintance with Jane Duncan (least read in my early teens) - it rather sounds as though this is the time to do so!


I'm half way through the book and so enjoying it - not least because it reminds me so much of my grandmother!

I'm not sure how I found Jane Duncan but it was at some point in my teens. My Grandmother who came from Elgin and spent most of her grown life south of the boarder took the weekly magazine, The Peoples Friend. Perhaps it was in there I came across this author, and seeing this book in your side bar has reminded me how much I loved her stories.


I've just finished the book, Fran, and I'm really sorry to have reached the end because I've enjoyed it so much.
