GOD BLESS THE BORDERS! by Lavinia Derwent

Illustrated by Elizabeth Haines

"I've lost yesterday', I once wailed to Jessie when I was a child, trying to recall some trivial happening the day before. 'Where's it gone?'

'Hoots!' cried Jessie, wiping her work-roughened hands on her apron. 'It's still there in your heid. Think aboot it, lassie, an' it'll come back.'

Fortunately for us, Lavinia Derwent decide to take Jessie's advice. The result has been her much-loved series of books about her childhood in the border country.

In 'God Bless the Borders!' the border bairn is experiencing the pains and pleasures of growing up, and we meet them again many of the unforgettable country characters of her yesterdays. As always, it is a story told with rare warmth and humour - and one which proves that Jessie was right. Yesterday is right there in your head.
