Trudy in Demand

£9.99

Product description

Trudy in Demand, by Mary Alice Faid. Hdbk. Pickering and Inglis, 1964. 157 pp. Yellow boards, with original dustjacket taped securely to them. Sticker inside: “Presented to IRENE CALLOW For excellent attendance at NORTH BADDESLEY CHURCH Sunday School.” (A lot of British social history there.) This is part of the ‘Trudy’ series, which still seems to have quite a following among Christian readers.

Trudy, now married to Derek Crawford, is about to become a mother. The flavour of the book’s style is well represented by the following extract:

‘She turned a shining face to him. “Did he live here, in Hampstead?”

“Up this way---Keats Grove, they call it.” They stopped at the gate of an old world garden. “It was under these trees that he wrote his famous ‘Ode to a Nightingale’”

“My favourite stanza comes from that poem,” she replied breathlessly. “Where he talks about---‘Magic casements opening on the foam, of perilous seas, in faery lands forlorn’.”’

The book contains one dastardly cad called Godfrey who is, we suspect, doomed to discontent. Every story needs a villain. This one seems to value money over love. Trudy sternly reprimands him. Good for her.
