Highland Holiday spine

This is the spine of  Highland Holiday, showing Sara with her prized camera, which does not actually feature heavily in this story. You can read my review of this book here. Although the attitude of even Jane Shaw's most dedicated admirers to this story is lukewarm, I enjoyed it immensely and have just finished my second reading of the story. It introduces us to all of Sara's family and has some of the author's funniest scenes. One scene in particular (Sara's hilarious run-in with the countess) would serve as the basis for the comic scene in Susan and the Spae Wife many years later.
