I also read Lady's Maid a few years ago and enjoyed it. Sounds like I would enjoy this too, and will have to see if this is published here in the US.

I have also read Lady's Maid, and really enjoyed it, so I will put Keeping the World Away on my "to read" list. Thanks for the review.

I read Travels of Maudie Tipstaff years ago, and thought it was very good. I keep meaning to read it again, and read more of her books.

Karen - how lovely to find that you loved this book too. I thought it was one of her best for a long time and I was so glad I could read it over the Easter break and give it the attention it deserved without interruption.

I've been meandering here for a while, but don't think I've ever got around to actually COMMENTING. And, such is the world of blog-names, I'm not even sure if I know you from dovegreybooks yahoo group, or not!?

Anyway. Love your site so much - for the beautiful photographs, of course, but also because of the huge crossovers we have in reading. I was very happy to see you mention some of my favourites - The Piano Shop on the Left Bank, The Diary of a Provincial Lady, Mapp & Lucia, The Summer Book (you looked at p.69 and didn't go on... but please do! It's wonderful!). Have also recently read Letters from 10, Curzon Street, and AS Byatt's Matisse Stories - and have most of the books you mention on my tbr pile... All in all, very glad I followed the link from dovegreyreader, and shall bookmark you to make sure I visit often...
Spiel over!

I lent this book to my sister just a few days ago; now I must re-read it when she returns it. Gwen John's life is fascinating, and her paintings are lovely, just so evocative. Her brother Augustus is fascinating too, but in a quite different way! Did you see the TV production about her a few years ago?
