A delightful follow-up to the bestseller "Dear Lupin", this collection of letters from Roger Mortimer to his daughter Louise - affectionately known as Lumpy - is a timeless example of the unbreakable bond between father and daughter. Dressing-downs, advice, family updates and even the weather are topics on which Roger holds forth, all with the same charm and humour that made "Dear Lupin" such as touching tribute to parents and their children.
The trials and tribulations of Louise's days at boarding school, her evenetful wedding to hot-hand-Harry and the brith of his grandchildren are all accompanied by a sometimes chiding, but always loving letter.
Between these milestones, Roger gives updates on the family, pets and the local gossip, hold forth on the weather, road safety and even suggests the best way to make a gravy soup, all in his own inimitable style.
Roger Mortimer's witty dressing-downs and affectionate advice were not only directed at his wayward son, Lupin. Though better behaved than her mischievous older brother, Louise (aka 'Lumpy') still caused her father to reach for his typewriter.
