I've just written about Royle's book too - really fun. And of course Furrowed Middlebrow can do little wrong in my eyes.

Oh I so enjoyed Aprioct Sky as well! What a great description: simply life as lived! Mrs Lorimer's family ( also as Mrs Lorimer's quiet summer) is of the same ilk. Written by Molly Clavering and hard to find these many long years but out there now. I must say though that O Douglas does "simply life as lived" better than anyone! My favourites are The Proper Place and The day of small things.

Cornflower

Indeed!

I've read only one O. Douglas to date but greatly enjoyed it and have another couple lined up. Thanks for the tip about Molly Clavering, Diana.

Thank you for bringing Devorgilla Days to my attention. I love memoirs and Hart's book sounds like something I'd enjoy, as does Apricot Sky.

Mystica

Was delighted that Apricot Sky was on Amazon for a very reasonable price. Sadly Devorgilla Days is far too costly!!!
But hopefully it will get accessible at some time. Thank you
for the recommendations.

Kathleen's spirit is impressive, and Ruby Ferguson serves up a lovely light confection of a book!

Cornflower

Hopefully the paperback won't be too long in coming.

Claire

Thank you, I'm going to listen to Devorgilla Days and will buy White Spines the next time I'm in my favourite bookshop, Toppings in St Andrews.

Nicola

I want to read all three!

Jodi

Thanks for suggesting Devorgilla Days. Got it this afternoon and love it.
