That quote resonates with me! The sense of attachment to a place, the addiction to stones, ponds and gardens, things you can't recreate elsewhere can be very sad losses. " I minded more than I can say" too . . . once.

Oh I am so desperate to read this its untrue!

Linda C.

Technical query: Amazon (US) lists author(s) of this book as Deborah Mitford, Duchess of Devonshire and Charlotte Mosley. Amazon (UK) lists only Deborah Devonshire. Since Deborah is the only surviving Mitford sister, I don't understand this. Anyone who has the book/has read it have any ideas about why that is?


Linda, the book's dedication includes the following, "To Charlotte Mosley, my editor ....", but she's not credited as such, though she is thanked in the acknowledgements along with DD's secretary as being crucial to the book's existence, so it was perhaps an informal arrangement, therefore puzzling to see why she's billed as she is in the US listing.


I thought I was all Mitforded-out, until I heard Debo talking on Women's Hour about her life. Now I want to read this!
