3 Works in Vesper Holly Adventures - Lloyd Alexander
23 Sep 2013
Miss Vesper Holly is fond of chamber music and ambivalent about houseplants. She is also habitually punctual, so if she's ever running late you may be assured she has a reason.
Unfortunately, as reasons go, Vesper's usually tend toward the incendiary.
Tea, sex and treachery.*
(* Two out of three only implied.)
To say that I was appalled when Vesper told me what had transpired between her and Dr. Helvitius the night before would be an understatement of colossal proportions.
