About the Author

Richmal Crompton (1890-1969) is best known for her thirty-eight books featuring William Brown, which were published between 1922 and 1970. Born in Lancashire, Crompton won a scholarship to Royal Holloway in London, where she trained as a schoolteacher, graduating in 1914, before turning to writing full-time in 1923. Alongside the William novels, Crompton wrote forty-one novels for adults, as well as nine collections of short stories.


Miss Crompton writes, as always, with distinction and humour. Her story of Hermione's married life can be heartily recommended as an individual novel about ordinary people. * Spectator *
It seems to me to have been done exceedingly well . . . You come to know and like these Derehams, and appreciate the intimacy with which they are presented -- Ralph Straus * The Sunday Times *
Ironical, humorous, and brilliantly understanding * Everyman *
It is continuously interesting. Miss Crompton is amazingly sympathetic, amazingly shrewd, and Hermione and her family come to life under her pen * Saturday Review *
You will find each boy and girl so vivid, and the sustaining thread of Hermione's slow fulfilment so convincing, that the story will enchant you * Evening News *
