I did read High Rising and one other book by Thirkell, and enjoyed them, and I would like to read the Mitford sisters letters.

I loved the book by E. Gilbert.

That collection of letters is a great introduction to them , Terra.

Great fun!

The only Thirkell I have read is Wild Strawberries and I was totally underwhelmed by it, should I try another of hers?

Cornflower

High Rising is much better, I think, than Wild Strawberries, but those are the only two novels of hers I've read so far so I can't speak for the rest (or for the relative places of these two in the canon).
I liked HR enough to give a copy to a friend, come to think of it, so that says something.

Thank you for this, I shall re-consider in the New Year, I
have too many books awaiting my attention at the moment but will be taking some
of them to Lochgilphead in the very near future which will leave a gap to be
filled.

 

T-a.

I've read a couple on here, and see others I have on my TBR list...think we have similar tastes!
