  1. Fantastic, I presume you've read "Keeping the World Away" by Margaret Forster, a very sweet story.

  2. I'm inclined to agree with Bloomsbury Bell - this is stunning. The turn of her face, the depth of her eyes, the colours.

  4. She looks a bit like Miss Treadwell the short-lived governess on Upstairs Downstairs.

  5. She reminds me of a middle aged Jane Eyre. I don't know why :)
