See how long it's been, then?! Ah, shame on me. It's been sitting, bubble wrapped, on top of my lovely Virginia Woolf's with Vanessa Bell covers for the longest time. Finally, being laid up, I decided THIS IS THE TIME! And it was truly enchanting.

Lisa, what a lovely surprise to see The Love Child featured! I must confess, it wasn't until I saw it here that I remembered having sent it to you. These things always work there way up the tbr pile eventually, don't they, and as a fan of Miss Hargreaves and The Haunted Woman, I felt confident that you'd like this one too. I've read it three or four times now, and always love it - and love that it's so short too(!)
