Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'One of them asked me if I was fond of reading and told me that she herself wrote books and was staying in the neighbourhood hoping to include the dale in her next book. Many years afterwards I read "The History of David Grieve" and at once remembered our visitor. Comparing dates I realised it was Mrs. Humphry Ward, seeking the atmosphere of the wild valley she described so well.'
