Dear Mr. Lawton, I wish that more would be added to your sight. I believe that the most beautiful writing produced was made by Rosemary Sutcliff, and I really enjoy looking here. I hope that the movie will increase people's knowledge of her books, even if it's not done well. Thank you for bringing more notice of my greatest inspiration as a writer. Reading her books touches somewhere in the human heart that other books fail to do.
I second the above comment, Mr Lawton. I just finished Blue Remembered Hills and feel so moved; I wish I could have corresponded with her. What a beautiful, tender, fierce, strong and courageous spirit she seems to have had. I feel lucky to have had the chance to have learned more about her.blogs can be difficult to maintain, but one can also think of a blog as an archive-- perhaps share with us some memories of your godmother, some stories or anecdotes, when you have the time. it would be lovely to hear them.all best to you.
How wonderful to find your blog. I read all her books as a teenager in England. Now I have published my first novel. Stop by www.markpsadler.com
