|Angela Thirkell's Barsetshire|
I found at the library an omnibus of three of Angela Thirkell's books: August Folly, Summer Half, and Pomfret Towers. Five hundred pages of Our Ms. Thirkell. These are the next, in order of course, of the Barsetshire novels after High Rising and Wild Strawberries which I have read and delighted in.
So I am going to hold my very own Angela Thirkell Read-A-Thon and settle in for a bit of armchair travel to Barsetshire this weekend.
Note to self - Pick up a couple of cranberry-walnut scones to go with afternoon tea, just to keep your energy up.
I found the following teasers on a website devoted to Ms. Thirkell's books:
August Folly (1936) - Mrs. Palmer stages a Greek play, the actors fall in love, and general misunderstandings and family adventures occur.
Summer Half (1937) - Barsetshire sets the stage for the lovely Rose Pickett and her engagements.
Pomfret Towers (1938) - The Pomfrets and their heir, Gillie Foster, are the centerpiece of this Barsetshire story.
I had better get started! What are you reading this weekend?
