It has been far too long since I have blogged, and there’s probably an apology in this somewhere. Similarly, it has been over eight months since book club. Potentially the worst, and the best, book club this side of the world I’m willing to admit that my own new job (raise your teacups to getting paid to write!) combined with juggling other commitments has not made me the most easy person to organise around for a book club with four other busy ladies. As this has been the case, Persuasion, the book of so much emotion, has been kept very much overdue. Which almost seems fitting considering the long estrangement of our heroine and hero.
