AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Poor Emily Bridget. She is coming unravelled. But as fast as her limbs droop and drop, husband Elson knits another in neat eight-ply. Elson would do anything for his own Sweetpea, even when the smell would deter a less stout-heatred man. (Publisher's blurb, back cover).
