This sounds fascinating. I'll have to pick this one up. I'm from North Carolina and love to read books with familiar settings. I hope that doesn't make me terribly vain.

Mia

Sounds lovely. I love books about the American South too. And if there's magic, then it's definitely for me.

This does sound charming - I just reserved it at my local library! :0)

Charming though this sounds, I must not, repeat MUST NOT be tempted, Cornflower! I have just taken delivery not only of The Encyclopedia of Ephemera and Trains and Buttered Toast (no, there is no connection, they just arrived at the same time). Have cast aside the novel I'm reading (Cartriona McPherson's Bury Her Deep) as I couldn't resist wallowing in Betjeman! But I must say, Garden Spells looks tempting ...

This sounds like a good read, just the kind to read on the sofa under an eiderdown!! I was just thinking of you as I was looking at the Persephone books site and remembered that I hadn't been over for a visit for quite a while! So hello

I've been on a bit of a crime-spree recently (fictionally speaking of course) and this sounds like a good antidote!
