      They always considered this their best book, and I can see why. The family business is hired to cater for a wedding but something terrible happens: the best man of the wedding is found dead, hanging from the ceiling of the Snowden home. Tweeting harmoniously, the early birds cast their wondrous melodies through the icy morning breeze. To try to convey the blueness of the sea, the variety and colour of the innumerable bays and creeks, the solemn hugeness of Lettergash mountain that towered on our right, is futility, and a weariness of the flesh.

      They always considered this their best book, and I can see why. In style, plotting, characterization, it is far beyond An Irish Cousin. It's hard to believe that this was only their second novel. Christopher, the heir, has just returned from a diplomatic post abroad. I had thoroughly enjoyed my last journey with those Anglo-Irish Victorian lady writers, to the vine country in the south of France, and a trip to their native land was a lovely prospect.

      By the time that Martin died in they had cowritten 14 books, including a powerful novel called The Real Charlotte and a collection of short stories, Some Experiences of an Irish. Original fawn cloth, lettered in black, with a black and white pictorial onlay Somerville and Ross book upper cover; very faintly rubbed and slightly tanned; very light spotting of endpapers, but a very good copy. While both her parents were versed in the classics and had an interest in writing, there was also a family connection with Maria Edgeworth and Edward Martyn of the Irish Literary Revival, so it is no surprise that she followed in their footsteps. Mystery novels like Clammed Up and Mussled Out speak volumes about the kind of writing that Ross does. Squirrels race from tree to tree in search of acorns for the coming wintery season
