While reading recent Tweets posted by Charlotte Frost (author of the recent biography of Sir William Knighton) – always a source of interesting news! – there was this retweet on 18 December from Helena Whitbread:
“I received some good news! Virago are putting out a reprint of my book, The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister. A nice Christmas happening.”
Indeed! I have Helena’s second book, No Priest But Love, yet have stayed with the library copy of I Know My Own Heart: the Diaries of Anne Lister. Time to add it to my library.
In looking for more about Helena’s recent activities — the Twitter account mentions a blog… — I came across the following, which readers might be interested in visiting:
