I so loved Year of Wonders that when I saw this at the library I picked it up on the off-chance. Somehow though, when I got it home, I kept looking at it and thinking 'I just don't fancy this', so it sat there as my only unread library book from March. It kept quietly nudging me though every time I picked up another book or walked past - read me, it kept whispering. So, before renewing it for another month, I finally picked it up. I'm not disappointed so far. I so love her writing, descriptive but no intrusive. I may try one of her non-fiction next but I hope she carries on writing fiction.
