I read Flowers for Mrs Harris years ago and fell in love with the story. The others were fab too!

I've seen a film of one of them; it may have been called Mrs Harris Goes To Paris.

Thats the film version of Flowers for Mrs Harris. It had Angela Lansbury and Omar Sharif in it. It was okish!!!

Im not sure id have used the cast they did. I think id have had the lady who played Nana Moon as Mrs Harris.

Yup, I've read them all too. And love Jennie and Snow Goose too (much more serious in tone, but lovely).

A long time ago - I can't remember much about it except it was very funny. Re-read The Snow Goose recently, after it came top of an R4 vote for the best 'forgotten classic' - I was rather suprised it was considered 'forgotten' and a bit young for a 'classic' - but very good book.
