A Mitford Moment

All that talk of Nancy Mitford heriones has me wanting to re-read ( for the umpteenth time) one of my all time favourite novels - The Pursuit of Love - always enchanting and uplifting! The book that is adored by Linda - the central character - is The Making of a Marchioness by Frances Hodgsen Burnett which I recently read again when confined to bed due to a horrid summer bug. I have now been on a book misson with Amazon as a result of my musings and find that there is a follow up - The Methods of Lady Walderhurst - ordered it at once!

It is always a wonderful surprise to discover a book one hasn't read by a much loved author - on the same mission I have seen that 2 of Nancy Mitford's early novels - Christmas Pudding and Pigeon Pie are to be re-issued in October - can't wait!
