Spinster of this Parish - Ann Purser

Orion, 1995, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Gently bruised at head of spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the DJ. Text bright and tight. A nice copy.

From the cover: “Best described as a modern ‘Miss Read’ Ann Purser continues her tale of the dramas of village life in this, her second novel, and sequel to Pastures New. It is a year since the day Ivy Beazley, an ageing spinster with a waspish tongue and an all-seeing eye, watched with deep suspicion as her new neighbours, the Palmers, moved into Round Ringford Post Office and General Stores. Peggy Palmer’s warm friendship with unhappily married Bill Turner continues to infuriate Ivy, until her attention is disastrously caught by the arrival of the new vicar Nigel Brooks and his wife, Sophie.”
