#1: Mary Woodley Author: JoyceLocation: Hong Kong PostPosted: Thu Mar 08, 2007 11:04 am

I'm writing a one-off fill-in story about Mary Woodley but I can't seem to find her after the big scene in Barbara.

Does anyone know if she re-appears in a later book? If so, which one?

I have a feeling she leaves in one of the next couple of books (I've a mental image of Vi saying something along the lines of "no loss there, then"). But I haven't got my book to hand to check.

EBD has another Woodley crop up later on - there's a Marguerite Woodley who is new in New Mistress, and in the same book EBD mentions Iris Woodley - but this seems to be an EBDism for Marguerite... I'm guessing no relation to the unattractive Mary.

From Wins the Trick (next book after Barbara)


"Mary Woodley's not coming back," put in a third.


"Don't suppose she knew - then. Her father's got a job in Australia -
Tasmania, I think. Isn't Launceston in Tasmania? They're off next
month. My Auntie Joan lives next door to them in Newbury. "

Really appreciate this, thank you!

I'm off to write my story now. I didn't want to commit a massive EBD-ism and have her still at the school long after she is supposed to have gone.

I noticed the Marguerite Woodley as well and thought it might be a sister.

But considering how far away they moved I doubt it now.
