I do hope I get a copy eventually. Sounds delightful reading.

Got this on Amazon at an amazing Price!

I am enjoying reading the novels of O. Douglas. Jane's Parlour is the next one on my list. Now I shall certainly look forward to tracking down and adding to that list a copy of The House That is Our Own. I came to O. Douglas after finding a copy of Penny Plain on my late Mother's book shelves and it is good to read your thoughts, Karen, on this gentle, domestic writer.

I have Jane’s Parlour and am yet to read it, but I’ll look forward to hearing how you find it, Teresa. D.E. Stevenson, Molly Clavering, O. Douglas … just the thing when you want a 'nice’ book!

Anne

I am reading Penny Plain at the moment which I am enjoying very much. I had been talking to a very active bright friend of over ninety. She was telling me how she was reading a book of her mothers. When she told me the author was O Douglas , I asked if I could borrow it. Horrors she said she had put it out for recycling in the bin.
She managed to retrieve it and gave it to me.
I wonder how many of these books are hiding away.
Best wishes for the New Year

I know that it seems rather contraindicative, but it is available on Kindle!

Cornflower

I’m so glad the book was saved, Anne! Thank you for your good wishes - mine to you in return.

Cornflower

Yes, indeed, and easier than a hunt around the secondhand shops!

Cornflower

Excellent!
