About The Book
“She watched him as women often do watch men … The incomprehensibleness of women is an old theory, but what is that to the curious wondering observation with which wives, mothers and sisters watch the other unreasoning animal ..!”
These two short novels raise the curtain on an entrancing new world for all who love Jane Austen, George Eliot, and Trollope’s “Barsetshire Chronicles”. The setting is Carlingford, a small town not far from London in the 1800s. The cast ranges from tradesmen to aristocracy and clergy …
The Rector opens as Carlingford awaits the arrival of their new rector. Will he be high church or low? And — for there are numerous unmarried ladies in Carlingford — will he be a bachelor? After fifteen years at All Souls the Rector fancies himself immune to womanhood: he is yet to encounter the blue ribbons and dimples of Miss Lucy Wodehouse.
The Doctor’s Family introduces us to the newly built quarter of Carlingford where young Dr Rider seeks his living. Already burdened by his improvident brother’s return from Australia, he is appalled when his brother’s family and sister-in-law, Nettie, follow him to Carlingford. But the susceptible doctor is yet to discover Nettie’s attractions — and her indomitable Australian will.
