... also wrote The Ship from Simnel Street, which is my favourite. The main
character's big sister is "following the drum" and Mam is determined to send
her a Christmas Cake as proof  of the family's support and continuing love
for their runaway. To make sure ONE cake gets through the lines, they bake
legions of them...

Isn't there another book like that? Ah, found it -- The Thirteen Days of  
Christmas, by Jenny Overton. Though I'm *sure* DWJ's is quite different!
 
So sorry about her back.

Does anyone know what happened to Jenny Overton? I read and loved The  
nightwatch winter, would love to read Creed country (must buy it),  
and now I know there is the Thirteen days of Christmas. But that  
seems to be all she wrote.
