Nella Last

I know I’m biased, being the daughter of a Barrow girl – but I do think that Mrs Last’s diary is one of the best I’ve ever read, and no one, not Walpole or Wordsworth, writes as well or as beautifully of the Lakes.

My uncle’s widow’s family knew her, I think.

Glad she had the diary. It had to have been a great consolation and compensation for what she lacked – which was a great deal (to my American mind).
