  1. The photo you included, of the grounds of an English country house, is very intriguing — but you did not identify the location. Maybe it should be familiar but I can’t recall having seen it before. I’ve been to a few of the National Trust properties and read about others, and they really represent a vanished society, despite continuing as the site of many mystery stories.
    best, mae at

    • Oops. I identified in Friday’s post — it’s called Hall Barn and the photo is from Country Life magazine, 1898.

  2. The fog has been so weird. I am really keeping my fingers crossed for sunshine. The Confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins sounds like one I might like!

  3. It was foggy all day Thursday, and that’s not usual around here either. It was spooky driving home from Galveston in the afternoon in the fog.

    I wonder if you have any interest in reading the latest book from Zadie Smith—it’s historical fiction set in England. I’ve been curious about it.

  4. I checked and had Confessions already on my TBR list so I will borrow it next after I finish reading Factory Girl.
    I just put Three Mothers on my TBR list.

  5. Three Mothers sounds really interesting. I might have to suggest that for my book club. I’m sorry they didn’t want to read your suggestion and I’m glad you’re still reading it. I hope you have a good week! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  6. Have you finished the Sara Collins novel? I still have an e-book copy of that which I should read this year. It looks good! So I hope you like the book. Love the photo of the boat house and water and grounds. Great pic to look at.
