Fanny update

Dear Richard,

I'm writing to let you know that I've finished reading the copy of Fanny Cradock's "The Lormes of Castle Rising" that I won in your "My Fanny in your Hands" competition some months ago.

I can't deny that it's been hard going, but I was determined to finish it and I'm glad I did, if only for the satisfaction found in completing such a Sisyphean task.

I found it a bit heavy on historical detail and a bit light on imagination and ripping yarns, but I've got to give her some credit for writing a better novel than I'll ever manage to write.

Thanks again for letting me get my hands on your Fanny.

I intend to give the book to my sister-in-law for her birthday. She likes cooking and likes reading so it should be a dead cert' for loads of Brownie points.

Yours sincerely,
