Didn't think I'd like this as much as I did. After reading "The Mitford Girls" I thought I'd give this a go. Pure 30/40's decadence

Terrible cover art, but filled with delightful tales of the landed gentry.
I've been sick for a week now (insert appropriately self-pitying raspberry) and this has been a great couch companion. How had I not read the Mitfords before?

Probably my all time favourite book (if an anthology can be called a book) such a sense of another time, ever since reading this, in my mid teens I have wanted a baby doormouse, and to live in a house with airing cupboards big enough to sit in - and to call people 'filthy sewers'.
What a treasure! After reading her sister Jessica's memoir, I had to read Nancy's fiction. It is packed full of humor, memorable characters, and delicious historic details. For some reason I dragged through the last novel, Don't Tell Aldred, some passages were tedious, but I still really enjoyed it. Worthwhile reading!
