Originally a hit comedy series on BBC Radio 4's Woman's hour. Created by writers Carole Hayman and Lou Wakefield, Irene Spencer and Vera Small--aka "the ladies"--Are happily widowed and live in a world of church fêtes and amateur dramatics. But when Irene meets Vera, tipsy and tangoing, at Irene's daughter Lesley's wedding reception, they embark on a correspondence unlike any other in the history of letter-writing. In their letters they share all the twists and turns of life's rich tapestry in true acerbic and forthright form--swapping family stories and subtle put-downs with ease and aplomb. It is through the ladies' narrow vision that we learn to love their long-suffering families, and through their increasingly hilarious escapades that we learn to love them. Irresistible in its depiction of the foibles of female friendship, Ladies of Letters is a sparkling collection of letters full of humor and vitriol in equal measure--Jacket p. [2]

Prunella Scales and Patricia Routledge make a clean sweep in a further series of the BBC Radio 4 comedy hit. The ladies are back, and this time they're full of Springtime recipes and tips for a long and healthy life. Once again, however, disaster is never very far away. Reunited at the bedside of a mutual old flame, Irene and Vera feel a sudden urge to focus on all things dietary and medical. From rest cures to rest homes, and from running repairs to running away, the intrepid ladies find themselves launching into battle with doctors, dieticians, their own families and of course, with each other. This sixth entry in the phenomenally popular series, first broadcast on BBC Radio 4's "Woman's hour", is guaranteed to administer a welcome dose of fun and mayhem. There are few double acts that delight audiences quite as much as, "Ladies Of letters."

It was only an old wooden doll with a broken nose that Emer found, but she was sure that there was something special about it. It certainly did some very undoll-like things like crying real tears in the middle of the night, and it was definitely the doll that led Emer to the ghost. But what does the ghost want? Emer is determined to find out - but when she gets on the right track, it seems as though there may be real danger ahead before she can solve the mystery
