"Thank you, thank you, thank you for this post which inspired me to read Trio. I have just finished it, after reading as slowly as I possibly could, to make it last longer, and have loved it SO much that I am convinced it will be one of, if not THE Book of the Year for me. The writing, the spirit of place, the characterisation, the whole historical atmosphere have combined to make it a magical read for me which I am sure will remain in my memory, and on my bookshelf, for many a year. Just magical! Now on a mission to track down the other Sue Gee books I have bought over the years so I can catch up on what I have been missing."
I haven't read Trio yet, though I may begin it today (having just come to the end of a long biography of Elizabeth Goudge); but great to hear it's so good.
