• His books are my lifelong love. He wrote 47 in total and I must have read them all; some twice. As I'm old and forgetful, I can just pick them up and start again and just know that they're going to be wonderful. My favourite is The Warden. It's a fascinating tale about the church and Victorian manners.

  • An affecting and delicate short novel

  • His characters are real, truthfully felt and never patronised by their creator
