  1. Just a nitpick - Eva Moves the Furniture is by Margot Livesey, not Penelope Lively.

  2. Whoops! Both great writers, but I love Eva Moves the Furniture. I am a sucker for a good gothic.

  3. And, for what it is worth, my last name is Westcott.

  4. Well, that's worth quite a bit. It's now fixed.

    As is the author for Eva Moves...
