Dear Enemy

by Jean Webster

If you've read Daddy-Long-Legs or even seen the film with Fred Astaire and Leslie Caron, you're sure to find Jean Webster's novel, Dear Enemy, delightful! As a sequel, this book-of-letters describes the adventures of Judy's best friend from college, Sally McBride, who reluctantly takes control of Judy's old orphanage The John Grier Home, a cranky Scottish doctor and over an hundred orphans! A delicious sense of humour and up-beat spirit for fun makes Sally an easily lovable heroine, whose capers you'll enter into as willingly as Sadie Kate does. The love story that sneaks in at the end is neither trite nor unwelcome, but finishes the story leaving us all wanting more.

Vincent's Donbridge series is a collection of stories and folk tales, some of which he heard from his own grandmother. As our author of the day, Vincent talks about the latest bundle from this series, tells us more about the inspiration behind the stories and reveals why he also included recipes in the books.
