A Mysterious Find

I’m currently on the lookout for novels by mystery writers to inspire some of my literary knits, so I was really pleased with my latest book haul from the Oxfam bookshop in Haverfordwest. I just love those covers of the Dorothy L. Sayers books, they’re fabulously retro!

‘The Leopard’ by Giusepe di Lampedusa keeps cropping up on recommended reading lists, but I’ve never come across it either new or secondhand, so that was a lucky find. Also, the day before, my friend Helen was simply raving about Margaret Kennedy’s ‘The Constant Nymph’. I’ve never heard of the book or the author before, so I was thrilled to find it the very next day. I bet Helen will be horrified that I’ve described her as raving, she’s far to elegant to rave, but then she did eat nearly half of the After Eights, so I refuse to show any mercy.
