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.
One of my favourite books (which I why I blew the bucks on this edition). Interesting illustrations. But the story is the thing here, and what a doozy it is too. Lost manuscripts, rich images, and two love stories that echo each other. Some humour, thankfully, mostly aimed at academics who deserve it. What I really enjoyed was the use of medieval literature in this. Highly recommended.
