She does look fantastic! One of my deepest wishes is to meet her, I so dearly would love to meet her.
Also, I just finished Knight’s Fee and it was fantastic! Not my favorite, but still a masterpiece. I cried.
Also, if anyone here is on Google+, you should join my community for Rosemary Sutcliff fans!
Sadly no meeting will be possible—she died in 1992. Sorry.
The great thing about being in a wheelchair is that you are nearer eye level with certain things like that rather nice pair of knees in the front row….
Doesn’t she look splendid! I’m about to reread my favourite (after The Eagle of the Ninth) – Knight’s Fee. I love it but it’s so sad.
