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.
A classic that I read as a teen, and have loved ever since. The historical tale of the romance between John of Gaunt and his mistress, Katherine Swynford. Terrific writing, a heartbreaker of a story, and it all happened to book. Very much recommended.
