Cannot recommend highly enough - I shall be buying more copies!
on 19 April 2016
This was bought for a friend with the intention of it being basically a coffee-table book for her to glance at occasionally. An hour after she unwrapped it, there were 5 of us still crowded round the book reading the letters with awe. Each page takes you to a different point in time, with letters between people I had never connected in my head. Having the actual letters copied there on the page (rather than just a typed version) is a lovely touch - there is just something surreal about seeing a scone recipe written by the Queen!
Truly fascinating read, and I am very tempted to buy more copies (both as gifts and one for myself!). I cannot recommend this highly enough - definitely consider this if you are stuck for gift ideas!
