Happy Thanksgiving!

Safe travels to all who are traveling; good cooking to all who are cooking. May your bird be crisp but not burnt, your potholders sturdy, and your kitchen timers timely.

On this day of thanks, I am particularly grateful for everyone here on this website. Thank you so much for coming with me through the various ups and downs and adventures of Napoleonic spies and tortured Pre-Raphaelite painters, Harvard grad students and 1920s flappers. Thank you for recipes and book recommendations, for suggestions and support, and for amazing creations made of Peeps.

Happy Thanksgiving, all!

    Well, and I am grateful for you. For you books. For your funny personality, for everything you gave us all those years.
    I am grateful I stumbled upon your books one day and got into your universe.
