Actually, I changed my mind and ordered it now, having found it cheap on abebooks.com. Birthday not until December, need to show that GR has its uses!

The book has arrived - Elisabeth will receive an unexpected present when she returns home from Sweden. It looks fabulous, at least for people who like that kind of thing :) Abigail, thanks again!

(And another few days later...)

Elisabeth just can't put it down. If you like girls' stories, this is apparently the thing to read :)
