Has the Member sampled any of her novels we wonder?
A New Book of the Fairies is listed at Trove, and it may be possible for us eventually to obtain a copy that way.
One of the principal characters of Spring Shall Plant (London 1920) bears the name "Patuffa". The "Selected bibliography" on Harraden's Wikipedia page has no entry for "Spring Shall Plant", but it does have an entry for "Patuffa (1923, 314pp)", an item not in the British Library catalogue at all. It may be that the reason for its absence is that it is just a trans-Atlantic edition of Spring Shall Plant. The NLA's Trove lists four versions of Spring Shall Plant (1921) as well as two versions of "Patuffa: the story of an artist" (1923); so I will naturally now endeavour to obtain one of those Patuffas and perform a comparison.
Another book - or at least another title - Youth Calling (also 314pp), was published in 1924. It is at the British Library but not downloadable from there. It is however also listed at Trove, and having been alerted to its existence I will endeavour to borrow it thence.
