Today’s Inheritance Books are from Kate Hewitt. I’ll go get the biscuits. While you’re waiting Kate, why don’t you tell us a bit about yourself?
Which book have you inherited from the generation above? Why is it special?
My mother gave me the book A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett when I was about eight years old and bored one summer day. I was enthralled, and it set me on a lifetime of reading. I’m so grateful to her for instilling that gift in me.
I love The Little Princess too. The bit when she comes to her room and finds a new things in it always makes me smile.
Which book would you like to leave to future generations? Why?
There are so many great books, and I try to instil a similar love of reading in my children, no matter what the book. But I have a particular soft spot for the fictional diary Stepping Heavenward by the hymn writer Elizabeth Prentiss, because that book has inspired me so much.
Thank you for sharing you Inheritance Books with us Kate. I love the covers of your Willoughby Close series. All the best with the latest instalment.
