I am so glad you like Tey! She is an absolutely intriguing author.

Margaret Powling

Tey now on my Wish list!

lindsay

She has the old fashioned and often despised virtues of writing elegant English and not presenting her characters as paragons or devils. Do read the Daughter of Time.

Deirdre

You sold me! Another book for my list. Wonderful review of a writer I hope to get know better. Thank you!

I am really glad that you enjoyed it. As well as The Daughter of Time that others recommend, I would also recommend Brat Farrar. It has a slightly more romanticised plot than some of her others but as usual her characters and prose are excellent. You might remember it as it was televised in the 80s.

Elaine

Oh I loved this book when I ead it many years ago and you have now made me want to read it again. I also adored Brat Farrer

Elaine

I posted in April that you had made me want to read the book again and I have and loved it all over again and see that you have visited my review as well as mine yours. I now feel a reread of Brat Farrar coming on
