A lesser known Stella Gibbons
Early printing (new impression). Hardback, bound in the original yellow cloth with printed titling to spine and upper board. 19 × 12.5cm, 308pp.
The Tower Guesthouse lies nestled between the beech woods of Buckinghamshire. It is run by the unlikely partnership of balmy Miss Padsoe and young, cockney Miss Baker—divided by class and age, they are determined to dislike each other. Through their tale and the interwoven tribulations of two young lovers, Gibbons's sparkling novel explores the heart of friendship and what unites us.
A good reading copy. The yellow cloth is rather grubby but the contents are in good order.
