What fun! It is too bad Dinesen was given such a hard time about it. I will definitely be on the look out for a copy!


Oh do! I think it's right up your street.


How amazing, I had no idea she had written a novel. You are so good at finding these hidden gems, Helen! I'm not a huge fan of melodrama, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading your review. Isak Dinesen undoubtedly salutes you from the gloriously starry and fun firmament where she resides.


Well, I am a bit of a Dinesen fangirl, litlove, so I suppose it's not so surprising! I know I called it 'melodrama', but I'm not sure that it's really the right word for it - the touch is too light. And I love the idea of her being in a gloriously starry and fun firmament - I do hope that she is!
