Years ago my mother introduced me to the “My Friends” books. These were a series of books written by Jane Duncan, a.k.a. Janet Sandison. Janet Sandison was a Scottish woman writing in the 1950’s and ’60’s. The My Friends books are fiction but roughly based on her own experiences. She grew up on a croft (farm) in the highlands in Scotland. She started writing seriously when she and her doctor husband were living in Jamaica. in the early 1950’s. (During the 2nd World War she served in the RAF.)
I recently purchased one of Janet Sandison’s books – a title that was new to me. It is titled Jean in the Morning. It was published in 1969, after the My Friends series. My copy its inscribed “To Susan Gray From Janet Nevada, Sudbury Ont., 1974” I look forward to reading it.
