I think I need to read a biography of BB! Thanks for the comment.
I dont think itll be among my favourites, but I dont think BB could write a bad novel if she tried. Its certainly amazingly perceptive and truthful to real life, I think.
Ali I think Harriet Said.. has been my favourite Bainbridge so far. I think its a better novel than this, but others might disagree!
Shes a fantastic writer, Liz - do plunge in.
Great!

When you contact the publishers, do say (if you like) that you have a commission to review it for Shiny!

Great - if you get it do consider reviewing it!

Lucky you = sounds great. Did you get a copy of The Sinking Admiral? Sounds like a review in Shiny New Books is called for!

Yes, Ive admired the museum from the outside but somehow never got in. I do love Paris!

Glad to have some support here, Ed! Yes do re-read -- very enjoyable.
Thanks for the comment Kay. I think you get to know Campion better if you give it some time. An amazing way into his psyche is Traitors Purse, where he loses his memory and has to relearn who he is and what he really feels. Highly recommended.
It is fun Jane. Hope you love it -- happy reading!
Thank you so much! How interesting.

Just pick one and read it and then read the other! Both are great.
I wonder too Ali. They are crying out to be republished -- come on, Persephone!
Do start, Carol, you won't regret it!
Kay, the children's books are wonderful too, of course -- I've read them all, most of them many times. So such a delight to discover a whole new source of enjoyment in the adult fiction.
So glad you enjoyed The Lark Mary and that it helped in that difficult time. The Red House should do some good too!
She was exceptional, Helen. I've loved her since I was about four!
Thanks so much for the nice compliment Erika. Love the story of your childhood.
It's all so terribly tragic, isn't it. I wonder why Patrick B never sent Branwell to school?
So glad you loved it Christine. And how lovely that it gave you such a great activity to do with your mother. It certainly is an exceptionally good book.
Magic buttons! School must be pleased with your donations!
