Gray, Janice

About the author

Janice Gray is an author about whom I have been able to find out very little: a Janice Gray was writing romances for Mills and Boon at about the same time A Credit to the Family was written, but I have not been able to find out if the two authors are one and the same.

Finding the book
It is extraordinarily difficult to find.

A Credit to the Family

Max Parrish, London, 1965. 144 pp.

“Nikki was sent to stay with her cousins on a stud farm in Gloustershire. A promising ballerina, she is terrified of horses and afraid that she will be forced to ride. Her cousins, Sally and Tim Carleton, are both excellent riders, and do not understand this city-bred cousin who is afraid to ride. It is unheard of for a Carleton to not ride. They feel she is a disgrace to the family. But Nikki is not as feeble as she appears to them. Secretly she continues with her ballet, and eventually
she gets the chance to prove her worth and win the respect of her horse-crazy cousins. Along the way, she also learns to love horses.”
