Further Information
Henry Carstairs had one main series character who appeared in all the books listed above, Lydford Long. Sadly we know very little else about the author, something we are happy to remedy should any family members wish to get in touch. We do know however that he is deserving of a wider audience. Having read some of his work it is of greater quality than many of his better known contemporaries. His style is firmly set in the Golden Age and for those who enjoy that genre we heartily recommend him.
