Overview

Tenth May, 1934. At this moment I look up and see the Man Who Lives Next Door standing on his doorstep watching my antics, and disapproving (I feel sure) of my flowered silk dressing gown. Probably his own wife wears one of red flannel, and most certainly has never been seen leaning out of the window in it - The Awful Carrying On of Those Army People - he is thinking.

Vivacious, young Hester Christie tries to run her home like clockwork, as would befit the wife of British Army officer, Tim Christie. However hard Mrs Tim strives for seamless living amidst the other army wives, she is always moving flat-out to remember groceries, rule lively children, side-step village gossip and placate her husband with bacon, eggs, toast and marmalade. Left alone for months at a time whilst her husband is with his regiment, Mrs Tim resolves to keep a diary of events large and small in her family life. Once pen is set to paper no affairs of the head or heart are overlooked.

When a move to a new regiment in Scotland uproots the Christie family, Mrs Tim is hurled into a whole new drama of dilemmas; from settling in with a new set whilst her husband is away, to disentangling a dear friend from an unsuitable match. Against the wild landscape of surging rivers, sheer rocks and rolling mists, who should stride into Mrs Tim's life one day but the dashing Major Morley, hellbent on pursuit of our charming heroine. And Hester will soon find that life holds unexpected crossroads…

Mrs Tim of the Regiment is part of The Bloomsbury Group, a new library of books from the early twentieth-century chosen by readers for readers.

    I love the novels of D. E. Stevenson, and am happy that several

    I love the novels of D. E. Stevenson, and am happy that several are finding their way back into print and a few even into eBook format. This book, a combination of two of her earliest novels (first published as Mrs. Tim of the Regiment, covering the first part of this edition, and Golden Days, for the month of June in this diary based story), is the first in a four book series about Mrs. Tim and her family. I hope to see Mrs. Tim Carries On (set during WWII), Mrs. Tim Gets a Job and Mrs. Tim Flies Home eventually join this one on my NOOK.

    One of my favorite books

    This book was adapted by the author from her journals. She was the wife of an officer in a Highland regiment during WWI and through WWII. There is a lot of everyday humor, but I get the sense of knowing a little bit of how life was lived in England during that time. The next book in the series, "Mrs Tim Carries On", deals with living through WWII and the blitz and the rationing.
