Dorothy W.

Mrs. Tumulty -- what a name! I don't think I noticed it when I read the novel. I'm so glad you enjoyed this novel -- I hope to come across more Taylor novels at some point; I enjoy her so much.


I am a great fan of Elizabeth Taylor. One of those quiet writers who makes you think long after you have finished reading the book. May I recommend Mrs Palfrey at the Clairmont? This is my favourite. I have several of ET's books in the old Virago editions and they are beautiful. I have not read this one and your post has made me want to get hold of a copy so I am going to search for the Virago edition if I can


Dorothy--Thanks for blogging about her last year-I think that is what finally gave me the impetus to buy a few of her books. I think I am going to enjoy reading more!
Elaine--I have a few ET's in old Virago editions and a couple of new ones. I do like her style a lot. I have an Amazon order started, and I have two more ETs already in the basket including Mrs Palfrey. Now I am really looking forward to reading it!


I'm so glad you enjoyed this! I love her writing. It's serene and yet sardonic and piercingly accurate.


Elizabeth Taylor is still on my list. I really want to read one of her books this year. So glad the book lived up to your expectations!
