Last Straw for Harriet

(1947)
(Fishy, Said the Admiral)
A novel by

 
 
Mrs. Ellison makes a valiant effort to prevent her brother, the Admiral, from visiting her while her children are at home for the Easter holidays. The Admiral, however, overrides all her objections. Unable to cope single-handed with a testy brother, a convalescent elder son and two younger children, Henry and Sue, Mrs. Ellison enlists the aid of a homeless refuge, Miss Eider, and the charming, but faintly mysterious girl from Scotland, Ellice Brook. To add to the numbers comes Aunt Adeline, who proves a staunch support to Mrs. Ellison in her attempts to smooth the tangles of her son Charles's romance with Ellice. The young Henry and Sue do their share towards bringing the affair to a successful conclusion.
