From the author of the global best-seller, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, comes a brand new serial novel set in the heart of London. 'Corduroy Mansions is the affectionate nickname given to a genteelly crumbling mansion block in London's vibrant Pimlico. This is the home patch of - among others - a lovelorn literary agent, possibly the first ever nasty Liberal Democrat MP and Freddie de la Hay, an urbane terrier trained to be vegetarian and respectful of feline rights. Loafers, wine merchants, vitamin evangelists and the occasional psychoanalyst pass each other on the stairs of this delightful metropolitan des res. With his trademark wit, charm and lightness of touch, Alexander McCall Smith introduces a colourful cast of characters, full of the life, laughter and humanity so beloved in his writing.
Corduroy was first introduced to readers in 1968, and in the fifty years since, his adventures have never stopped. Corduroy has been on the department store shelf for a long time. Yet as soon as Lisa sees him, she knows that he’s the bear for her. Her mother, though, thinks he’s a little shopworn—he’s even missing a button! Still, Corduroy knows that with a bit of work he can tidy himself up and be just the bear for Lisa. And where better to start than with a nighttime adventure through the department store, searching for a new button! Celebrate 50 years of this irresistible childhood classic, a heartwarming story about a little bear and a little girl finding the friend they have always wanted in each other.
Corduroy was first published in 1930. It was followed by Silver Ley in 1931 and The Cherry Tree in 1932. Together they form a trilogy that has been described as 'the classic account of a twentieth-century Englishman's conversion to rural life'. In Corduroy the author's experiences as a farm apprentice in Suffolk are described. The tone is affectionate, humourous and not in the least patronizing. At times there is an elegiac strain not dissimilar to Edward Thomas. The three books constitute a threnody for, what was then, a vanishing, pre-mechanized way, of farming and rural life.

Marriage takes hard work. Daily life can take its toll on even a successful marriage. And when one of the parties commits adultery, the effect on a marriage can be devastatingand final. But it does not have to be. Author Hannah Brodies Corduroy is the true story of love and faith bound together beneath Gods gaze. Young love, starry-eyed and rose-rimmed, turned sinister and dark when vows were shattered and trust broken. The promise of a married life of blissful togetherness was torn to shreds by a prolonged marital affair. Brodie tells the story of a young wife who just wouldnt let go, even when everything and everyone around her were shouting and telling her to get out. It is also the story of a nave and decent young man driven to breaking his solemn vows and his wifes heart through lust and deceit. Corduroy shows how a wife, through Christs eternal grace, continued to believe and trust God would restore her marriage, her husband, and her love, and how a man finally found redemption and grace. In Corduroy, you will learn infidelity does not have to mean the death of a marriage. Follow a couple who made their way out of the deepest valley and found a renewed passion and love through Christ. It takes work, but you can find this renewal through Christ as well.

It's a dream job - a chance to model the fabulous outfits designed by Jones & Hewens for their new Corduroy Rose label. For Sally, Tasha and Fay, it's a way to end the summer on a high note before school begins. And it doesn't hurt a bit that head designer Peter Hewens is stunningly handsome in a dark and brooding style. But a shadow has marred the glamour. A guest was killed during one of the showings at wealthy homes, and a series of thefts may be linked to the murder. And then Peter's young sister Valerie vanishes, leaving signs that convince the police of her guilt. Before she "ran away" she asked Sally Sharp for help, but never had a chance to say why she was afraid. At 17, Sally is already well known as a problem-solver. Suspecting that Val was set up, she takes the case. It pits Sally, Tasha and Fay against the police, against Peter - who bafflingly refuses to cooperate - and against a pair of vengeful teens who mean to bring Sally to a permanent and very unglamorous end.
