Anna Buchan was the sister of the renowned John Buchan, author of "The Thirty-nine Steps" as well as noted biographies of Montrose, Cromwell etc. Anna chose to write as "O. Douglas" and was an acclaimed author in her own right. Her oeuvre ran from "Olivia in India" (1913) through a dozen novels, to culminate with "The House that is Our Own" (1940). Her autobiography "Unforgettable, Unforgotten" was published in 1945.
Her works are currently out of print - but "those who have never come across "Eliza for Common" or "Pink Sugar" may nonetheless find it interesting to follow the quiet career of a writer who gave so much pleasure to so many people".
