Elizabeth Taylor gave me a present from the Seaside.
Thrilled that I am that Virago recently launched new series of Elizabeth Taylor titles.http://www.virago.co.uk/results.asp?sf1=author&st1=Elizabeth%20Taylor&lang=en&sort=sort_date/d&m=1&dc=11
I am more thrilled at my vintage finds in the Old High Street in Hastings. They are a very welcome addition to my collection joining Angel.
I love the fact that they all come from one woman's library. I did leave many other titles behind for others that follow in my footsteps but I may visit again soon and collect a few more.
I enjoy her easy style and her prolific output.
A View of the Harbour- cover 'Lyme Regis' by Richard Eurich
The Blush- cover 'Avens' by Audrey Johnson
The Devastating Boys- cover 'Love in the Mist' by Nancy Sharp
The Sleeping Beauty- cover 'Musing' by Norman Hepple
The covers themselves will send me off at sometime in the direction of new artists to read and learn about.
So after a virtuous morning making plum and apple chutney, plum and blackberry crumble and freeze drying fruit in general to use in the barren winter months. I am giving myself an afternoon treat in my fruit filled garden.
I am off into the summer house with a pot of tea to meet 'The Devasting Boys'.
'Her children had been her life, and her grandchildren one day would be: but here was an empty space.'
Elizabeth Taylor- The Devasting Boys.
