From the cover: “For Helen Bradley as a small child Tuesday afternoons up Springhead were very special, because Great-Aunt Jane could tell the most beautiful stories about God. ‘In the beginning’, she would always start off… The gay, graceful Edwardian magic of the Miss Carter books is here deftly coloured with Helen Bradley’s childhood visions of the Almighty at his daily work – that exciting time when fish and chips were served for tea as a special treat on Judgment Day, when Adam and Eve could be found at Blackpool, and God lived up in the shed on the moors.”
