Mehso-so

Sally Lunton returns to her guardian's house in Little Crampton with the express goal of landing the new bank manager. But her pursuit is complicated by a rival, an old beau, a mysterious stranger, & the scheming town gossip. Sally is a likeable character adept at poking fun at people's foibles, but the unoriginal story gets bogged (get it?)down by old-fashioned mores. Fine overall, but perhaps not all books lost to history need to be re-found.

Aimeesue That's a great cover! 2mo
batsy That's a shame it wasn't a pick, but you got a good pun out of it! 😆 2mo
merelybookish @Aimeesue Yes! It's part of the British library's British Women Writers series. They all have pretty covers! 2mo
merelybookish @batsy Lol. These are the things that matter. 2mo

"The successful little Cramptonian is born, not made, as strangers coming to the place soon found out to their cost, for even the Cramptonians themselves had to be careful, on account of Miss Maggie Hopkins."

Life is tense in Little Crampton, folks! ?

Book Mail!

“You‘re not out for romance at thirty-one; it‘s business.”

The latest release from the #BritishLibraryWomenWriters series is this 1915 “spinster-lit” novel. Bohemian Sally (living in Paris) flees home to England from Paris during WW1 to live with her guardian, the Reverend Lovelady. She‘s determined to settle down but finds she has a dastardly rival for the affections of the village‘s “most eligible bachelor”. 😆😆

Leftcoastzen Yay, spinster lit! 1y
