I want Mirabel Osler to be my granny.This book is a reminder of why we learn to read and savour language. Osler celebrates life and is deliciously frank about her mother's colourful youth mingling with poets and painters. I would love to sit with her by the fire and hear all her travel stories and somehow download all her gardening knowledge into my brain.
Read this straight through, but really a book to dip into, a collection of essays drawn from her experiences. Some very thought provoking pieces about aging, the death of loved ones, moving on and letting go - all written with originality and great powers of description. A keeper.
