Oh I L-O-V-E-D this book, so much strength in it. Cross continents to hear William Fiennes talk about it Karen, you won't be disappointed!

Simon T

I remember Harriet Devine loving this writer, I think... thanks for the encouragement to read him. Your final sentence has definitely got me interested.

Gavin

I loved this book, as well as The Snow Geese. I hope he is working on another.

Jill

I loved both these exquisite books when I read them and was so glad to be reminded about how special they are.Thank you Karen.

LizF

I read it after dovegreyreader raved about it and couldn't agree more - a really beautiful, thoughtful book which says so much about family.
Thank you for reminding me that I have an unread copy of The Snow Geese on my shelf that I definitely feel the need to read now after a frantic couple of weeks!

Nan

You did a beautiful job. It sounds truly wonderful. Thank you.

Verity

I disappeared into this book when I read it and had to get my husband to go out so that I could read it in complete peace. BEautiful. We then went to Broughton castle the following weekend.

Must reread

I'd very much like to hear him, Lynne!
Isn't it just one of those books you want to press on people you think will love it? I've given a copy to a friend today as I'm sure she'll be on that wavelength.

Cornflower

He's uncommonly good I think, Simon.

Cornflower

Oh, I hope so too, Gavin.

Cornflower

You're welcome, Jill. They are such special books.

Cornflower

He's a very 'still' writer, isn't he - perfect after a busy time.

Cornflower

I think you would love both his books, Nan.

Cornflower

I'd like to visit the castle, too, and I can quite see why you shoo-ed Mr. W. out so that you could get on with the book, Verity!

Mystica

I like memoirs very much. The sad part I can take if as you say its uplifting as well. Any memoir would have its sad element. No life can be smooth sailing all the time.
