THE LAIRD AND THE LADY

1949

Described at the time as a ‘modern romantic comedy’ The Laird and the Lady always occupied a special place in Joan Grant’s affections as the book ‘I completely made up’. The story of an American heiress who meets a Scottish laird in a crumbling French chateau turns from high romance to ghost story as the courageous Marylda uses her ‘second sight’ to unravel the mysteries of Castle Cloud.
