Night and Day by Virginia Woolf

Night and Day by Virginia Woolf

This is a meditative reading from Viginia Woolf’s classic novel at Katharine Hilbery and her mother are going through the process of compiling the letters and information for the biography of their great ancestor.

We learn a lot about the family, but I’m sure I won’t keep you awake as we discuss Katheirne’s methods for organising paperwork and keeping her mother in line.

We learn the shocking information that Katharine has  a talent for mathematics right before the story moves to the activities of Mary Datchet and her flirtations with Ralph Denham.

This is really a beautifully written book, full of charming characters. But they way I read to you I’m confident you’ll be asleep soon.
