Our Island Story
Those very good chaps at Civitas have a project to republish H.E. Marshall’s Our Island Story. The Daily Telegraph has been running a fabulous campaign to support them. John Clare points out in today’s ‘Any questions?’ how popular the idea is and how you can help.
By coincidence we were given Mrs Englishman's Mother's copy a month or so ago, with a load of other books, and it is the book of choice in the East Wing Lavatory. I have been enjoying rereading it, remembering it from my school days. For some reason I always imagined the author to be some tweedy pipe smoking gentleman - so I was surprised to discover the author's name behind the initials - Henrietta Elizabeth Marshall! Support the campaign and get hold of a copy if you can - you will enjoy it as much as the next Harry Potter from that John Kingsley Rowling chap!
