Janet Sandison made her bow in My Friends the Miss Boyds, Jane Duncan's sparkling first novel.

Here she is again, now a determined young woman of twenty with a University degree. Taking a job with a cranky Pen-Friend organization, she meets Muriel. Muriel is uncompromisingly plain, but clings like ivy.

As the lively narrative unfolds, Muriel's story and Janet's diverge and interlace again, aided by a blushing curate, an eccentric she-dragon and her severely repressed husband, by a shady confidence trickster and a suit of armour!

Muriel is a splendid creation

Daily Telegraph

Beautifully written, full of moving and funny incidents and highly entertaining
