A Pony to Stay

Lutterworth Press, London, 1968

Reprinted 1976, Lutterworth Press, pb

“Lal Verney loved to go riding but she didn't often have the chance, for her parents hadn't
much money to spare and she herself was too shy to join a club or hover hopefully round
the local stables. it was lovely when Joss Merton nvited her to come over each day and ride
Cuffy, Joss's lively and affectionate bay pony. Joss and Lal soon became fast friends, but
then Joss was told her family were moving to a city, with no place for Cuffy.  Joss couldn’t
bear to sell Cuffy,Shy as she was, Lal knew that between her friendship for Joss and
affection for Cuffy, she would have no rest unless she tried to help.”

The Wilde Riders

Kingfisher, 1960, illus L F Lupton, 120 pp.

“Vicky has her own private bathroom and a father witha Rolls Royce: Alison is the powerful leader of her 'set' at
school: The Sherwood's have a secret society and do good deeds around the village.  The people in this book
have everything. But have they? They need more than that to cope with the problems of a broken home and a
school corridor, and to ride through the storm as Katherine Wilde once rode to her death.”
