Her Ladyship greets Miss Daisy with excitement. She's due to retire and wants to have some fun. "Let's drive round the world", she declares. `Not with me', thinks Miss Daisy, and a love-hate relationship between two very different personalities begins. Each year, Her Ladyship dreams up a so called `training trip' for them. "It's only a few hundred miles," she would say. But every time, something would go wrong - a wheel falls off, Her Ladyship's haemorrhoids are exacerbated by `those damned speed bumps' and then there's the Sat-Nav... Ah yes, the Sat Nav. The journeys get longer and longer and Madam's demands become ever more bizarre, that is until a two-thousand mile trip round Spain exhausts them both. Then, when the garage door closes, Miss Daisy recalls her early years and the people who have touched her life. Surely now that she's living with her Ladyship, she'll eventually settle down? It seems though, that it is not to be... Miss Daisy's Diaries is a charming work of humorous fiction `written' by a 1934 Austin 7 motor car struggling to live with a new owner. It will be enjoyed by fans of comic tales, the baby boomer generation and vintage and classic car enthusiasts.

About the Author:

Pamela Hunt has spent a lifetime in broadcasting, starting as a BBC Sound FX operator in 1969 and rising to run a successful independent production company. She's had a lifelong love of historic vehicles and, on acquiring Miss Daisy in 2004, felt that together they could write a book.

Review:

"A neatly interwoven pair of narratives... The fascinating and sometimes moving story of a vintage Austin 7... the car's entertaining adventures with her latest owner... A delightful read" -- Chris Serle * The Atwell Wilson Motor Museum * 'A splendid autobiographical account of the adventures and life of a 1934 vintage Austin. It's rather like a visit to an ancient aunt who regales you with tales of her adventures with vivid flashbacks to earler times.' -- Austin Seven Magazine
