Tuppenny Times: Easter Empire Trilogy #1 by Beryl Kingston @AgoraBooksLDN #ReRelease #HistoricSaga @berylkingston

Saw a man in a car dealership today, complaining that the bicycle they gave him is not the £30k car he bought.

They told him to accept it & move on.

The man apologised & said, yes I am sorry, I need to be more democratic, I shall work on this.

Fall in the love with the formidable Nan Smithen this Valentine's Week.
