D. E. Stevenson's fine sense of characterisation and romance makes this novel a delight to read. It is a golden tale of ordinary, lovable people in a small town of Beilford. Sue, the Baker's daughter, makes an uncharacteristically impulsive decision to accept a post as housekeeper to Mr and Mrs Darnay, dashing her family's hopes of her marrying a local suitor. And when Mrs Darnay suddenly departs, Sue's position in the house is left open to idle gossip - Mr Darnay is after all an artist, and everybody knows what that means. But it is not until Sue is summoned home that she finally realises the strength of her feelings towards her charming employer.

A delighthful story
This is a delightful, slightly old-fashioned story. I first read D E Stevenson's books when at school (which wasn't yesterday!) but was so pleased to find the story of Miss Bun as pleasant today as then.
