Laura Ashley: A Life by Design
Laura Ashley: A Life by Design
by Anne Sebba
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars So Informative and Detailed, 10 July 2013
Anne Sebba wrote this book which is THE only authorised biography of Laura Ashley. Anne goes into detail about Laura's upbringing, her background, her personality. Anne also tells us that Laura Ashley was very much a team effort with Bernard her husband. A fascinating read for anyone interested in fashion, design, retail and strong women. A triumph.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun yet Informative, 28 Jun 2013
The Season - what is it? Events where a bunch of toffs get drunk. Well it can be, but the great news is we are all invited to the party. It is a mixture of people at these picnic infused sporting and cultural events - just like England is now. You can go to The Season reasonably cheaply and have a great day out. Sophie interweaves history in with her haphazard summer of visiting every occasion on the calendar. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out Loud, 28 May 2013
Growing Up in Restaurants is one of those rare books; funny yet informative. James Pembroke writes a candid and hilarious account of his strange upbringing in the 70's frequenting resturants with his dysfuntional family. He also tells us the history of eating out in Britain from Roman times until now. He is adamantly anti-foodie saying that restaurants have now become churches. He urges us to go out and have fun while we eat. A great read.

4.0 out of 5 stars FUN and ENGAGING, 26 April 2012
This is such a fun life enhancing novel. Joey the heroine is so easy to relate to even though she is a New Yorker, I love they way she loves her dog and cannot handle her best friends kids, she has an open mind and is very honest. The ladies in the society are eccentric and an eclectic mix and their average age is 80.
Please do go and buy this jolly book for a rollicking and entertaining read.
