This book has been a lovely companion to me on our small holiday.. it‘s described as “ comforting but not cosy “.. great characters.. this one has echoes of From A Distance. The protagonists are the Blake family & I felt that I moved in with them while reading this book. I wish them well & am sorry to say goodbye. A book about greed & the nasty Mr Knight… Another Dorothy Whipple for me soon I think 👍🏻❤️

marleed Oohh, I‘m intrigued! 1mo

shawnmooney Cathy, how about a “bite-sized book chat” about this novel? I am pretty sure you are familiar with the series. The playlist is here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLU-61cZp1pQdBH5V0Zb9q-2ujl4PY8nhf I‘d be delighted to have you on as a guest! 😁 1mo
Cathythoughts @shawnmooney Thanks so much for asking me Shawn. I‘m too shy in that kind of situation , so I will decline your kind offer. I love your series and I‘m enjoying the bite-sized chats with some of my favorite Litsy friends! Thanks 🙏 😊 Cathy 1mo

I went to the mall today to get some much needed new clothes. I got frustrated because I couldn‘t find anything that fit or was the right kind of fabric. Yes having Autism has drawbacks when picking out clothes. So I went into Schuler Books and found a #Persephone for six American dollars. It‘s didn‘t have the bookmark, but you can‘t go wrong with the price.

JamieArc Schuler books? Do you live in Michigan?? 3y

A little blurb from the post script which is far more articulate than I could be.

I really liked this one, even though it was a bit of a slow burn and I knew what was going to happen as soon as Mr. Knight was introduced. But that's fine. Whipple writes well and with insight into every day domesticities and human behavior.

Gotta love #persephonebooks - they haven't let me down yet. 😃

There are so many truths in this book - and this one is the most resonant.

Whipple gets it. I love it when authors get everyday relationships and domesticity so right - and I love the feminists tone this book sometimes adopts.

INFINITY BOOKS (GREAT USED BOOKSTORE IN TOKYO) FIND #5

This was one of the three Persephone Books I picked up. They were as expensive used as they are brand new off the Persephone website, but when I pointed that out to the store owner he slashed the prices by 50%.

Susannah These Persephone editions are so beautiful. I keep having to remind myself that I really need to be interested in the topics of the novels before I purchase them just 'cause of the pretty. 😍 5y
quirkyreader I just love #Persephonebooks. But when I purchase them, I see them as a special treat. 5y
