A friend introduced me to The Colour of Milk,
It is set in 1831 by fifteen-year-old Mary, who had been toiling on her father's farm with her three sisters. She is sent to care for the local vicar's invalid wife. As events unfold, it slowly becomes apparent why it is so important that she keep a record of what has happened.
Now I'm reading Memoirs of a Dipper.
A bookshop friend said to me: "I don't do harrowing..."
10th Oct 2016. I finished 'Memoirs of a Dipper'. It is an excellent book, well crafted and written. Despite the sad chapter with Ginger, I would highly recommend it.
