The Sunday Salon
This last week has found me reading a few short stories by Daphne Du Maurier, 'The Rendezvous and other stories'. These were good for quick reads in between sewing.
However as the months are passing quickly I remembered Becky's challenge for the Bronte Sisters which I had signed up to a while ago. So yesterday I started re-reading 'Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte. I love this book. I read it years ago on a train journey from Cambridge after visiting my daughter. The lady I sat next to on the train remarked that she tried to read it in the past and couldn't. When I replied that I was a keen fan of the Brontes she gave me a very strange look, lol! Well that made me determined to read, and determination soon turned to pleasure as the story unfolded. It has a popular 'Bronte' theme with Agnes Grey leaving home to be a governess to a very unruly family. Next week I'm sure this book will be finished and I'll have moved on to another grear read. Hope you all have a good week.
