Matty and Dearingroydes

Matty and Dearingroydes

(1956)
A novel by

 
Matty, even in her sixties, is game for any adventure. She has found in the second-hand clothes business a life of colour and excitement, and when Matthew Dearingroyde comes searching for his long-lost cousin to restore her to the bosom of her family, she is quite willing to bring her buccaneering spirit to the task of being a 'poor relation', shedding the tawdry finery she loves in favour of the subdued and genteel garments of Miss Matilda Dearingroyde. In this warm and delightful novel, Richmal Crompton tells the story of Matty's impact on the different Dearingroyde homes at which she stays; of how she instinctively guesses at the drama which lies beneath the surface in each household; of how she shamelessly interferes and how, in the end she is gloriously triumphant. Matty is a magnificent character.
