Faid, Mary - The Other Side of the Park. Hurst & Blackett. 1972, 1st (not the book club edition). Heather Osborne's father is a respected figure in Auldriggs society. With his daughter he occupies a handsome villa in the upper reaches of the town. He has high ambitions for Heather, which include her marriage to a business man in their own circle. In the park which divides them from the lower town, Heather meets John Glen, a science student, who falls far below her father's standards. She is torn between staying on her own side of the park or moving across to John's. The consequences of her decision bring some hardship, but also fulfilment. This is the story of two familes linked by a closely kept secret from the past. Heather's father and John's equally strong-minded mother maintain a feud to which there seems no solution. Mary Faid has set her moving novel against a beautifully drawn Scottish background. (flap). 7½" x 4¾", 184pp, library laminated boards, hardback.
