I intended to do more of these posts months ago, including some of the many dustjacket scans provided by my Fairy Godmother from her vast, envy-inducing collection, but I never got round to it. Happily, there's time to do it now.
This time around are some random covers for novels for adults. These are for books or authors that just happened to come up in emails with FG or that I had mentioned on my blog. You should be able to click on each one in order to view it at full size. Hope you enjoy perusing as much as I have!
|Ruth Adam is an old favorite (and hopefully soon a new reprint...)|
and this is one of her rarest titles
|I've also written often about Kitty Barne, another favorite|
|This might look like not my (or FG's) cup of tea, but based on|
mentions of it it might actually be quite entertaining
|One of several titles I came across in my quest for WWII titles|
|Rachel Ferguson is an all-time favorite and this is her only novel|
to cover the WWII years, in a seaside resort no less
|Mary K. Harris is well-known for her school stories, including|
Gretel at St Bride's, which features a girl refugee from the Nazis, but
she's less known for her three more grownup titles, shown here
|Sometimes I'm mortified at my reading habits. Having reviewed Hassett's|
Sallypark and Educating Elizabeth years ago, and having had this sequel
to the latter on my shelf for nearly as long, I still haven't read it...
|Hilda Hewett is a slightly newer favorite, and here are three of her|
books I haven't yet read. With any luck, you'll see jackets for a couple
more of her books soon, currently winging their way to me from England!
|Another intriguing book I investigated for our WWII batch of FM titles|
|And I learned, thanks to FG, that this one has little or nothing to do with WWII|
|Two really lovely jackets from a favorite of many of you as well as|
of me. I have both of these, but of course I haven't read them...
|FG sent this jacket and the next one along after I'd written about|
another adult novel by Barbara Willard, author of the Mantlemass
historical fiction series for children
|And finally, just because it's so beautiful, the jacket of Enid Bagnold's|
final novel, which I read years ago and remember liking (but nothing
else about it)
There, now don't you feel better?
