I liked High Rising so much I wrote to Persephone books and suggested they published it, an idea that they replied to, but gave it short shrift indeed. That was me told. But glad I'm not the only one

Wonderful review. I think you would enjoy Demon in the House. It is very short. Tony, Laura, Donk, George, etc. all return. Tony seems to be somewhat controversial (with readers) but I just *love* him. There is a sweet scene when Tony explains to his mother the reason for Master Wesendonk's tears.

I have _Circle of Sisters_ and _May and Amy_ in my TBR pile. It seems like I never get around to reading non-fiction -- maybe over Christmas break.


These will definitely go on my Christmas list! Thank you for so many bookish delights this year that would otherwise have slipped passed. Through you I discovered the wonderful Linda Gillard, "Alys,Always" and have just finished "Night Waking", which I loved. Many thanks.


I'm so glad to hear that - thankyou, Deborah!


I thought Tony was fun and I do wonder how his character develops in subsequent books, so many thanks for that recommendation, Margaret.


I think Persephone have missed a trick there, Chloe; I loved it!


How lovely to read your Angela Thirkell post. I love rereading her novels but thought I might be on my own in this pursuit. Thanks for the company!


I think you'll find you're not the only one to be given short shrift by Nicola, Chloe.
She has strong views and is unused to being questioned or contradicted.
