When I left school I ended up doing a degree in archaeology and as fate would have it I ended up digging in The Rocks. The place has always been special to me.
As an adult I have since moved on, but I still find myself drawn to the idea of Beatie Bow. I love for instance the Sarah Waters novel Fingersmith. But nothing will ever surpass the image I still have in my head of walking up the stone cut steps of the Argyle Cut thinking that the book's characters stepped where I stepped.
I forgot the name of the book over the years since school and the other week the name popped into my head, so I got on-line and bought the book. Delivery time was fantastic and the book was every bit as brilliant as the first time I read it. Truly wonderful read if your not too serious to enjoy it...
This book was and is a "big deal" to me as I remember it as being everything that I wanted to read of "what if I could go back in time" and really set my imagination going.
What can I say? I loved it.
