A few publishers are reissuing delectably old-fashioned vintage books, and among that most satisfying are those of D. E. Stevenson. After I discovered the delightful Miss Buncle last year, I was delighted to find a follow-up in which Miss Buncle gets married. (See MISS BUNCLE’S BOOK and MISS BUNCLE MARRIED, of course.) The third is THE TWO MRS. ABBOTTS, allegedly the third and last in the series, but a fourth book, THE FOUR GRACES, was just reissued and picks up right where THE TWO MRS. ABBOTTS leaves off, albeit with different main characters. In any event, you must love a book whose preface concludes with this quote: “…all the best people have at least one bat in the belfry.” Indeed!
