But she finds unusual solace - in secret meetings with a man who shares her passion for Russian novels...The second story, "My House in Umbria" tells how romantic novelist Emily Delahunty helps the ...

Trevor at his usual best

by Trevor4 on Nov 5, 2009

These two novellas are shaped by this brilliant writer so that the reader is immersed in what is being said, not on how it is being said. I.e. one does not edit Trevor: his words are perfectly fitted to the picture he's projecting, his voice is gentle & elegantly persuasive so that you absolutely do know what he's saying - even when his idea is a totally new one to the reader (which can be quite often in Trevor.) I am always glad I'm reading Trevor. I'm always sorry the story ends but I am delighted with the train of thoughts it has left me with.
