Stopping the traffic

And on becoming engaged

Between whiles, Susie had graduated from the Miss Catherine Judson Secretarial College in South Kensington, which she had attended with her sister Sonia, and had worked for several years with specialist publishers Hugh Evelyn in Fitzrovia. She had thereafter travelled (alone) overland via India to Hong Kong – then still British – where she lived and worked for close on two years.
