David Prosser about this book: After the first Barsetshire Book was published I was asked a couple of times what I did to earn the limp and the use of crutches I mention in it. I was also asked why I'd retired when I inherited the title and what I first did with my time. Knowing an explanation would be mundane I thought it fair to allow myself an adventure. So was born the second book of the Barsetshire Diaries in which along with the title I gained a secret. It was a surprise to learn my deceased cousin was an unofficial Envoy for HMG and they were rather hoping I'd take the role on in his stead. I couldn't refuse.
I found myself on various missions abroad gaining trade treaties, rescuing damsels in distress (and myself from damsels not in disdress) and finding embarrassing documents.During one of the missions I was stabbed in the ... and now I use crutches. (You didn't think I was going to tell you for free did you? If so, you missed your chance when I did KDP and gave ebooks away).
The hard part of this book was trying to gauge whether me away from the village would work. Laughter from the other bedroom indicated yes. Now all I wanted to do was entertain the paying public and I hope I am doing.
