Thank you so much Claire from Kiss a Cloud for your wonderful Persephone Christmas present! I was a bit worried that my package didn't have a card so I was wondering who my Santa was but luckily Claire dropped me a note yesterday to let me know.
My Persephone present is the New House by Lettice Cooper. It's a Persephone that was also published by Virago so this is a doubly special present for me and it's a complete surprise. It's a terrific choice Claire!
"All that outwardly happens in The New House is over one long day a family move from a large imposing secluded house with beautiful gardens to a small one overlooking a housing estate. But all the characters and their relationships with each other are so lovingly portrayed that one cares passionately what happens even to the unpleasant ones. "

I'm so looking forward to reading this. Thank you so much Secret Santa and thank you to Stacy at Psmith for organising everything.
