I like a good read, and when the subject can add a layer of interest with its social and historic context, all the better. Tracey Chevalier's Remarkable Creatures is well written. I read the first part slowly taking in every little cameo. I read all the way to London, and being so well looked after in London, and having a couple of peaceful hours in bed in the morning, whilst Vicki was at the Gym, I finished the book.
The place of women in society is sympathetically traced, we have gone a long way since then. I so enjoyed the description of Lyme, so that is now on my list of places to visit soon.
I was pleased to have found such a good book to read. Another one which I pulled off the shelves at the local library.
