Funny, informative and captivating writing.
on 12 November 2001
Mary McKie writes about her time living at Felbrig Hall in Norfolk, a National Trust property, where her husband spent 3 years as a Houseman.
She shows how the hall is very much alive all year round and how much work there is to do to keep the house preserved and in a suitable condition for visitors. Through the pages you will live with them and experience the many visits, frustrations and expectations that members of the trust and other visitors have of our historic houses.
In parts funny and in others very informative, one even feels frustrated on their behalf in some circumstances. A Wonderful book. If you read this you'll read "Dry Rot and Daffodils" immediately. A book you can't put down.
