The Lost Traveller by Antonia White. This is the second book of a four part series. Apparently Evelyn Waugh admired her writings which is why I started reading them.
Lavinia by Ursula K. Le Guin reminds me of C.S. Lewis’ “Til We have Faces” Pagan with flashes of the beatific.
One Fine Day by Mollie Panter-Downes. An interesting read so far. It takes place in England after the second world war and explores how the war effected the middle class. Housewives became more isolated, help was harder to find and families had to manage without ‘those anonymous caps and aprons who lived out of sight and pulled the strings’.
I’m always looking for a good book. What are you reading?
P.S. I’d like to write full reviews once I’ve finished reading them . . .
