I thoroughly enjoyed discussing Trappings with the Blarney Book Club, an Edmonton-Victoria group of dedicated readers. They met in the book store business 25 years ago! It was an honour to have them read my historical novel on their anniversary year. Our engaging talk ranged from my writing and research process, to the many mourning customs of the Victorian era. We explored changing attitudes to living with loss, then and now.
Elaun: Such a treat to discuss Trappings with her… I enjoy stories that make me laugh out loud and cry — Trappings certainly did that.
