    Wow Thank you Victoria, now I can get your other books. I am busy reading Past Mischief (in paperback form) at the moment (my favourite of your books so far) for the third time. I love the characters, all so real. As I don’t own a kindle, this will give me a chance to read your updated works. Many thanks. Liz

    Lonely silence,

    Among the many reasons I love your novels is that your main characters manage to counter familial neglect and cruelty with patience, love and practical work toward the creation or preservation of beauty and history. That is a true “fairy feat” and very hard to do in the less magical reality of everyday life. I find it very kind that you give your readers such tales of strength and hope.

    I don’t quite know why, but this good old Dickinson poem belonged right here.

    Much Madness is divinest Sense –
    To a discerning Eye –
    Much Sense – the starkest Madness –
    ’Tis the Majority
    In this, as all, prevail –
    Assent – and you are sane –
    Demur – you’re straightway dangerous –
    And handled with a Chain –

    Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886)

    Dear Victoria,

    in the hope that a little poetry will go the long way of gaining your readers another one of your wonderful blog entries, I am offering here one of the best-known and most beloved German Spring poems. I couldn’t find a decent English translation & have therefore done my own, with as little sacrifice as possible to metre & rhyme scheme; there’s some, but not much, sacrifice to the original sense, however.

    Er ist’s

    Frühling lässt sein blaues Band
    Wieder flattern durch die Lüfte;
    Süße, wohlbekannte Düfte
    Streifen ahnungsvoll das Land.
    Veilchen träumen schon,
    Wollen balde kommen.
    —Horch, von fern ein leiser Harfenton!
    Frühling, ja du bists!
    Dich habe ich vernommen!

    Eduard Mörike (1804 – 1875)

    It’s Spring

    Springtime lets his bluest band
    Flutter, once again, through ether;
    Sweetest scents ride on its tether,
    Drift with promise over land.
    Violets dream by now,
    Poised for their appearing.
    –Hark, afar a harp is chiming low!
    Springtime, yes–it’s you!
    Yes, it’s you I’m hearing!

    An August Midnight


    A shaded lamp and a waving blind,
    And the beat of a clock from a distant floor:
    On this scene enter—winged, horned, and spined—
    A longlegs, a moth, and a dumbledore;
    While ‘mid my page there idly stands
    A sleepy fly, that rubs its hands…


    Thus meet we five, in this still place,
    At this point of time, at this point in space.
    —My guests besmear my new-penned line,
    Or bang at the lamp and fall supine.
    “God’s humblest, they!” I muse. Yet why?
    They know Earth-secrets that know not I.

    Thomas Hardy

    The Party

    And that’s how it is; everyone standing up from the big silence

    of the table with their glasses of certainty and plates of forgiveness
    and walking into the purple kitchen; everyone leaning away from the gas stove

    Marie blows on at the very edge of the breaking blue-orange-lunging-

    forward flames to warm another pot of coffee, while the dishes pile up in the sink,
    perfect as a pyramid. Aaah, says Donna, closing her eyes,

    and leaning on Nick’s shoulders as he drives the soft blade of the knife

    through the glittering dark of the leftover chocolate birthday cake.
    That’s it; that’s how it is; everyone standing around as if just out of the pool,

    drying off, standing around, that’s it, standing, talking,

    shuffling back and forth on the deck of the present
    before the boat slowly pulls away into the future. Because it hurts

    to say goodbye, to pull your body out of the warm water;

    to step out of the pocket of safety, clinging to what you knew,
    or what you thought you knew about yourself and others.

    That’s how it is, that’s it, throwing your jacket over your shoulders

    like a towel and saying goodbye Victoria goodbye Sophie goodbye
    Lili goodbye sweetie take care be well hang in there see you soon.

    Jason Shinder (1955–2008)
