A ROLLICKING romance written in author Gail Mallin's Mills and Boon days is now available as an audio book.

Gail, who lives in Park Street Lane, produced a book a year for the imprint in the 1990s and has since learned that copyright returns to authors after a given period if a book is not republished.

As a result she has sold The Devil's Bargain, a romance set during the Restoration period, which she wrote during that period.

Gail, who wrote 10 historical novels for Mills and Boon at the rate of one a year in the nineties, described it as a, "Cinderella-type story about a country girl who comes to London seeking a husband at the court of King Charles II only to find love and unexpected adventure".

The Devil's Bargain is published by Soundings Audio Books with the ISBN number 978-1-4079-0396-5 and local libraries should be able to obtain it.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
