I've brought home Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont a couple times, but haven't had a chance to read it. I have been told the film is wonderful, but I really want to read the book first. This will be my second book by Elizabeth Taylor. I wrote about the first one here.
I read about Marcia Williams' My Secret War Diary, by Flossie Albright at Darlene's blog, and was enchanted. I left a comment asking if she had read Raymond Briggs' Ethel & Ernest (a wonderful book which I highly recommend) and she wrote back suggesting When The Wind Blows.
Addendum: My Secret War Diary is one of the best 'J' books ever. I read about a third but quit because I wanted to read my own book. I wish it had been around when my kids were younger. I didn't read the Briggs book for the same reason. And I wasn't in the mood for Mrs. Palfrey. I believe this is the third time I've brought it home, and I think I have finally realized that I just don't want to read it.
