This book is for Thomas Smith. Dear T.S, I have used the elements of your post-1945 story as you said I might. The condition that you laid down is that I must make a nice, happy book out of it because everything had ended happliy for you, and I hope that what follows is nice and happy enough to please you. May I present this book to you with my affection? Jane
First words
"I've heard it said," Lord Beachwood put in, "that the more relaxed and comfortable people are together, the more sinister the things they find to talk about. I am inclined to believe it must be true. How did we arrive at bunions?"

"Lucy is a doormat!" said Lord Beechwood. "No, not a doormat - a bath mat. One of those fluffy, woolly ones that tickle you and then get all soggy."

Book description
Ulverscroft Large print Edition description:
"'She must have been six feet tall, and she was gauntly thin and narrow and so hung about with necklaces and floating, gauzy scarves that she had the appearance of an uncompromisingly angular, cast-iron lamp standard that had been elaborately clad in black crepe for some important funeral.' This was Janet Sandison's first impression of the mysterious, clairvoyant Madame Zora, who was to involve Janet and her husband Twice Alexander, home on leave form the Caribbean island of St. Jago, in a series of events, uncanny, semi-tragic, or just plain hilarious."
