I was thrilled when I heard that Claire would be hosting the Secret Santa this year and there was no doubt that I'd participate again. I always have such fun browsing the Persephone website and a year on, it was great fun choosing the very first Persephone for my Santee. A nice little bit of synchronicity, don't you think? I just hope I've managed to pick one that she'll love.
Of course I've also been quite eager to find out which book would soon be added to my small collection. I actually received the parcel a couple of weeks ago but decided not to open it... until today! And here's what was inside...
Persephone Book No. 18, Every Eye by Isobel English
From the Persephone website:
Every Eye is one of her most successful and sensitively written books, a romantic yet unsentimental story of a young woman's intricate relationships of family and love, intensely evocative of the period, remarkable in its observations of place and character.
Thank you so much Teresa, for choosing this book for me. I can't wait to read it, and know just the time to do it. During February 25th-27th, when Claire and Verity will be hosting a Persephone Reading Weekend, of course! A big thanks also to Claire for organising this wonderful gift exchange.
Happy Grey Christmas!
