  1. I am going to order this book right now – I loved To Serve Them All My Days – it is ages since I read Delderfield. You are great Alison – may you eventually find someone worthy of your passion and grace (no more pearls under the feet of s………….)

  2. This looks like the EXACT book I need to read right now … I looked it up on amazon and there's a sequel too!

  3. I have had that book for an age now – how funny it is! One forgets that women back then often found household drudgery just as perplexing as most women do now. Have you read the original "Keeping Up Appearances"?

  4. I should not be surprised by now, and yet somehow, I still am! I discovered a lovely old edition of this in a charity shop a few months ago and just adored it! Now I must go and rummage amongst the bookshelves here at the library and see if there is not another one in the series…

  5. Hi Alison,
    I've been reading your blog for a while now and love it! You provide so much inspiration and encouragement. Thank you for this book tip. I'll have to check it out.

  6. Oooo, look at the new look for summer!!! Very cute! And, (you enabler you!)you've convinced me that I need yet another book 🙂

  10. Hurrah!!! My copy of the book arrived and I cannot put it down! Thank you Alison for recommending this fantastic book,I notice in the forward by jilly Cooper that there are more "provincial lady" books to be had,I must have them,our Heroine is at once humorous,sometimes flustered and dare I say awfully familiar! even though this book was written many years ago,her domestic problems are our domestic problems,read it and weep!
