I can’t remember where I first heard about Angela Thirkell – the Backlisted podcast perhaps?
It was easiest to find a Kindle version.
Here’s the blurb …
Successful lady novelist Laura Morland and her boisterous young son Tony set off to spend Christmas at her country home in the sleepy surrounds of High Rising. But Laura’s wealthy friend and neighbour George Knox has taken on a scheming secretary whose designs on marriage to her employer threaten the delicate social fabric of the village. Can clever, practical Laura rescue George from Miss Grey’s clutches and, what’s more, help his daughter Miss Sibyl Knox to secure her longed-for engagement?
Utterly charming and very funny, High Rising is irresistible comic entertainment.
It was fabulous – my favourite book so far this year. Four out of five.
