Re-reading this book

Joyce Dennys was born on the 14th of August 1893 in India. She came back to England in 1896. She was a doctor's wife in real life. Her fictional character Henrietta is also a doctor's wife. Dennys writes in a simple style but with wit. It is in a form of short letters to her childhood friend Robert who is away fighting the war. She describes the country life and the funny politics with cute characters playing major roles.

It's difficult to buy this book in any local bookstore in Kuala Lumpur. I have two of her books and hope to get her third soon. ( Either by ordering it from Kinokuniya or TIMEs)
