I just finished Touch Not The Cat and have moved on to Postern of Fate and Enchanted April (LOVE,LOVE, LOVE that book! And they didn't totally mess up the movie either). The trouble with reading too many of these English books is that it makes me wish someone would leave me a house in the country, or a "nest egg" so that I could rent a small castle in Italy for a month or even have servants and go to tea parties....So romantic...sigh.
All of my relatives are poor, but healthy! Oh, I wouldn't really want to get my "riches" that way anyhow. It is just such a nice day dream to think that someone will knock on the door one day and suddenly you own a cottage and have an income. And wear tweeds and ride horses and go to tea. Come on, admit it! You've thought about living like that too! Haven't you?
