Just discovered your blog through instagram! This book sounds very good. I have a wonderful book on the home and garden of Beatrix Potter and would love to visit it one day!


I hope you will get the chance, Sunday! I visited Hill Top ages ago but would love to go again. Meanwhile, I have Marta McDowell's and Susan Denyer's books on Beatrix Potter's gardens/home on my wish list.
Re. Instagram, I found your lovely blog by that means and have subscribed to it, so good things all round!

Like Sunday Taylor, I am happy to discover your blog, but it was not via Instagram, which you make look fun, but your article on Erika Robuck's House of Hawthorne In Historical Novels Review.

Linda Lear's biography was good company for me in our snowy New England winter, and I like the quote you chose about Beatrix Potter's childhood reading. I think you'll enjoy the parts with the sheep, too, which all links with her long appreciation of those special lakes and hills.


Welcome, Jeannine, and thank you so much for stopping by! I didn't know the article was out (I'll no doubt get a copy in due course), but I'm glad it brought you here.
Glad to hear you enjoyed Linda Lear's biography - I am loving it and am delighting in all the detail.
