I know it's a fault in me, but I've never really got on with Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane. Sometimes, they just get on my nerves. But having read and enjoyed Jill Paton Walsh's incarnations of them in later life, I thought it would be interesting to ...more

I've been a Kate Bush fan since I was seven, when Wuthering Heights came out, and I've loved her music ever since - but this book showed me how little I really knew about her. Balanced, informative and really well researched.

“Looking back though, she knew that nothing could have been as unfamiliar as this grief”
nicola upson

“Looking back though, she knew that nothing could have been as unfamiliar as this grief -- this vast landscape of sorrow, emptiness and guilt, in which there were not signposts, and no rules on how to behave. If she weren't so numb, she might be amused by the irony of it all; the first thing she ever had to do without Harry was mourn him.”
Nicola Upson, Angel with Two Faces

“Now I think that just to be in the same room as you is adventure enough, that your friendship would be more exciting than most people’s love. All my good intentions left me the minute I set eyes on you today, and I know that even if I tell you to go now, sooner or later I’ll come crawling back like a spaniel begging for any crumb you might throw me. I know that my love for you will make me lie my way into your friendship, that I’ll deny the very fact of its existence just for the joy of seeing you.’ She looked away, suddenly self-conscious. ‘It’s ironic, isn’t it? I don’t want you to change at all, but I’ll become whatever I have to just to be near you—I’ll even be your friend.”
Nicola Upson, Two for Sorrow

Susan Not a comment, but a question- will "Sorry For The Dead" be available at Audible? Love the Josephine Tey series and Davina Porter's narration!
