Thanks Joan. Sorry to hear the bad changeable weather is your end as well. WE all need a long blast of warm sun, I think.

Amazing review -- glad you shelled out for this. I must have read Gouge many years ago but have no recollection of what or when.
It would have been very interesting to read this during pregnancy, though I think anyone whos gone through it will be able to relate. Yes, its beautifully written!
Lovely post.
Yes Nancy the autobiographical elements are interesting. But its really what she makes of them that make this book so special. I've never read National Velvet, amazingly enough!
I'm sure you will love this one, Darlene. I don't think I've read anything else by Bagnold (but given my memory these days, I might have!).
Oh for some warm sunny days by the sea!

I think you will love her!
Definitely one for the wish list, Alex!
I suppose its not to everyones taste, Ali, but I think discerning people (like us of course) will get it and love it!
Yes Hayley, I love them for much the same reasons. This one is really excellent -- hope you can find in on the shelves!
I've read this, but not for ages. Marsh doesn't always hit the jackpot, but it sounds as if she does it here. Thanks for the reminder!

I know that reading button reviewing mode vey well. But life must go on, and snails must be encouraged to eat -- why, though, I wonder? Most people would be delighted to have fasting snails in their gardens. I suppose they are part of the zoo...
Tiger in the Smoke is much admired, Lory, but I think this might be a better introduction to her -- though actually you could pick up anywhere and enjoy!
Happy to have pushed you, Frances -- you have a lot of fun in store.
Happy to hear that Joan. She is indeed a terrific author. I never get tired of her.
Thanks, Helen. This would be a great one to read after Sweet Danger as it continues the story in a way. Go for it!
Time for a reread, Ali!
I think she's so well worth revisiting, Kaggsy! She really was good.
I'm sure you'd love it, Simon!
