The uncomfortable day-bed was where simpering misses could collapse, waving their fans - or perhaps while away an hour or two reading a lurid novel. I think the chair would have been a better option. The carved feet make both items of furniture look as if they could run away with the occupant at any moment.
'The Mesalliance', my fourth book for Robert Hale, came out on the 1st January in Large Print and I had hoped to be able to post the new cover today, but I haven't seen it yet. However it should be in a library next month, as are all my books.
I hope everyone had a good break and will have a happy and peaceful 2008.
