Telynor's Library, and then some

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.

Nightingale Wood: A Novel - Stella Gibbons A very funny, very smart novel about upper-middle-class life in late 1930's England. Two families, separated by a woodland where The Hermit, the town drunk and squatter lives, come together in unlikely ways when Viola, the Withers' widowed daughter-in-law, arrives and chaos starts brewing. Lots of wit, some tongue-in-cheek moments and just enough sadness to make all of the lovely bits sting just a bit more. If you liked Cold Comfort Farm you will probably like this one.
