Like "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day", this 1937 novel is a fairy tale for grown-ups, but one 'with an uneasy crash into social reality'. Lady Rose Targenet, later created the Countess of Lochlule, marries Sir Hector, owner of the estate next to 'Keepsfield', the palatial Scottish mansion where she lives. But one day she meets someone on a park bench in Edinburgh...'It's a little book about dreams and the hard world of money and position and their relations to one another. It's also a love story and a love letter - to Scotland' (Candia McWilliam). "Lady Rose and Mrs Memmary" was a great favourite of Queen Elizabeth, who was later the Queen Mother.
