They're here; the first two titles of the Bloomsbury Group to be released (that I've been anxiously awaiting) are available now. I'm not the only one to receive a nice package (or two) in the mail this week! Henrietta's War by Joyce Dennys and The Brontes Went to Woolworths by Rachel Ferguson now grace my (very teetering) bedside bookpile. They're nicely designed--pale pastel colors with black silhouettes (I'm sure those have a name, but I don't recall it at the moment) fitting to the story inside those lovely covers.
Henrietta's War also has illustrations scattered throughout the text (by Penelope Beech).
Although I've already read The Brontes Went to Woolworths, it's a hard book to come by these days. I had to find it through interlibrary loan, so now I am happy to have a copy to call my own and will definitely be rereading it soon. Here's the what the inside cover looks like--more silhouettes and the covers of the forthcoming titles. I do like a nicely designed book! It's my goal to have these read/reread before the next two books come out in September. Shouldn't be too difficult, right?
