Here's an author I've watched with interest. Parson's Nine was good entertainment; Tops and Bottoms a disappointment. Now comes Shepherdess of Sheep, under the aegis of a new publisher's imprint, and it is the best story of the three, and very different from either of the others. A delightful and unsentimentalized picture of a prosperous English country household, before, during and after the war, through the eyes of Sarah, who succeeded as a governess because she wasn't the governess type, but who became so necessary to the family that she found she could not be a person in her own world. There's much of the Miss Mole appeal. Try that audience and you will find ""satisfied customers"".
