A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework, and anything else I can think of.
This has to be my favourite version of the Beauty and the Beast tale. Written both for teens and adults, and smart to boot, without the sentimentality and sticky sweetness of most versions. It's clear that the Disney animation took a lot of ideas from this one, including that magnificent library. Very much recommended and worth it to find. Five stars overall.
