Here’s a look at what’s come into my home recently:
Amberwell, by DE Stevenson. Having read the two of her books that are in print, I was anxious to read more by her. It’s too bad that most of her books are out of print…
Poison, by Sara Poole. An ARC of a novel set in 1492 Rome.
The Sixth Surrender, by Hana Samek Norton. Another ARC; the novel is set in the early 13th century. I’m most of the way through it now and the story really runs away with itself in the second half.
Every Eye, by Isobel English. My Persephone for July.
Some Bloomsbury Group classics: Henrietta’s War, Henrietta Sees it Through, Let’s Kill Uncle, Mrs. Ames, and the Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris/New York omnibus.
A bunch of Virago Modern classics have forced themselves into my house over the past month or so:
Diana of the Crossways, by George Meredith.
The Edwardians, by Vita Sackville-West.
The Enchanted April, by Elizabeth Von Arnim
The Gentlewomen, by Laura Taylor
The Land of Spices, Kate O’Brien
The Orchid House, by Phyllis Shand Allfrey
The Rector’s Daughter, by FM Mayor
South Riding, by Winifred Holtby
The Three Sisters, by May Sinclair
The year Before Last, by Kay Boyle
