28 Feb 2009 – The Methodist Book Sale

I bought this mid-1930s volume because of the horse picture on the front! It’s not actually a pony book, although ponies do feature, but a rather moralistic but still fun tale of southerner Gundry, plunged into the wilds of the North Country (the Borders) and the lives of her neighbours, who have a Doom over the family.  A bit of religion mixed in with the doom and teenage self-improvement – very much of its time but readable and with delightful illustrations.
