One author's name seems to have cropped up a lot in our three meetings so far: that of Mrs Molesworth (1839-1921). I'd never come across her - surprisingly, considering my diet of Victorian children's books - but once you've heard a name it's incredible how often it comes up! Just clearing old books from my father-in-law's house near Ludlow when I came across an original copy of Four Winds Farm (1908). Some nameless child has coloured-in all the plates with felt pen ... I thumbed through the book but must admit I don't know if I could face investing several hours into actually reading it!
