‘And a singing bus driver’s the unlikely catalyst for Maggie Cobbett’s lively romance’ in the new issue of the People’s Friend, available today.

I love the accompanying illustration, not least of all because the handsome young man bears more than a passing resemblance to my husband in his youth. The title wasn’t my choice, but hey, I bow to the TPF’s superior knowledge of these things.
