High Rising

High Rising

Successful lady novelist Laura Morland and her boisterous young son Tony set off to spend Christmas at her country home in the sleepy surrounds of High Rising. But Laura’s wealthy friend and neighbour George Knox has taken on a scheming secretary whose designs on marriage to her employer threaten the delicate social fabric of the village. Can clever, practical Laura rescue George from Miss Grey’s clutches and, what’s more, help his daughter Miss Sibyl Knox to secure her longed-for engagement?

Utterly charming and very funny, High Rising is irresistible comic entertainment.

Reviews

Charming, very funny indeed. Angela Thirkell is perhaps the most Pym-like of any twentieth-century author, after Pym herself
Alexander McCall Smith
A smart new edition . . . A terrific holiday story
The Lady
To be so witty and charming yet also so brilliantly brusque and practical as Laura Morland is my new year's resolution
Pippa Wright, author of The Foster Husband
Appealing
Glasgow Sunday Herald
A delightfully entertaining comedy of manners. Full of period charm and witty authorial comment
