4.0 out of 5 stars A Victorian stroll, 19 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I find the histories of various areas in and around the City fascinating and the Bradshaw had some delightful gems.
The Victorian language and style are redolent of the very buildings themselves...proud and confident.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Search Of London(H.V.Morton) This is a compulsory and compulsive guide to anyone visiting or living in London., 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I came to this book via Ackroyd`s "Biography of London"- he refers to Morton`s "In Search of London"and I felt I had to read it.
I was not disappointed. The historical content is beautifully inspired and enlivened by the author`s obvious love of London and its
people.I am familiar with London`s city and yet Morton is so deeply knowledgeable that my appreciation and understanding was further deepened.I could not put this book down and must remember to take it with me to use as a companion when I next visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Life of Rebecca Jones", 30 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"The Life of Rebecca Jones" informs us of a truth that is moving and eternal.
To-day`s urbanised,materialistic world provides for many, a void ; the background
and foundation of Rebecca`s life in the countryside are fundamental and real,a wholeness.
This was a beautifully written book and sympathetically translated from the
original Welsh. Do not,however,conclude that this story is parochial- it
is universal.
I strongly recommend.
