I love this thank you. I've long been fascinated with the beautiful garden at Sissinghurst and with Vita. I also love Virginia Woolf and her book Orlando (Sally Potters film version may be my favourite film ever) apparently written for Vita.

I enjoyed the BBC adaptation GentlemanJack of the Diaries of Anne Lister which I'm reading at present, and there are definitely some parallels with these honest accounts of relationships and Vita's letters.

I'm also a huge Agatha Christie fan, so love the gentle cyanide poisoning of Harold and subsequent investigation scenario in the first letter.

Very enjoyable,
