Webster, Barbara

About the author

Barbara Webster was married to the illustrator Edward Shenton, and was well known as a writer about the countryside. Probably one of her best loved books is Stillmeadow and Sugarbridge, a collection of letters she wrote to Gladys Taber, and which Edward Shenton illustrated. Her one horse book is aimed at adults; unfortunately as it is sky-rocketingly expensive I am unlikely to get my hands on a copy any time soon in order to be able to find out more about it.
