A Real Pleasure: Rereading “The Camomile Lawn,” by Mary Wesley

I have just reread The Camomile Lawn, one of my favorite books.  What a pleasure to read!  And so naturally I am musing about the splendid career of Mary Wesley, who published her first novel, Jumping the Queue, when she was seventy-one.  For many readers, that was the biggest part of the story.  Actually, it is a pretty marvelous part.  My goodness, we all thought, there’s hope for us yet. 

You can read the rest of this post at my new blog, Thornfield Hall Redux.
