Stella Gibbons wrote lots of books but hardly any of the others have been kept in print. don't bother with the sequel Conference at CCF if you come across it though - my library had a copy and it's very disappointing. I do recommend Nightingale Wood, reprinted in Virago Modern Classics a couple of years ago.
