London – Bloomsbury 1

 

While in London recently we stayed in Cartwright Gardens in Bloomsbury. Cartwright Gardens just happens to be at the northern end of Marchmont Street which is the setting for the last part of Liz Byrski’s novel “Family Secrets”. This family drama features Connie, who travels to London after her husband dies to meet up with her husbands’ sister Flora. Connected to the story are the staff and owner of Judd’s bookshop in Marchmont Street. The current bookshop, while not quite as atmospheric as the one depicted in the novel, has a good selection of new and second hand books covering fiction and non-fiction.
