Ogether the threads of this tale Dimbleby takes us through a turbulent period in English history and visits the most far flung corners of the Empire William Morris Rudyard Kipling William Gladstone and prominent members of the Souls also play a part in this sweeping often funny and sometimes tragic story Richly detailed and exuisitely told May and Amy is a stunning account of hidden love and family secrets. I liked the story and some of the family history But what I have a supreme problem is her reliance on the rhetorical uestions Like Kathyrn hughes mentions They are overly dramatic and make you think something definite will be revealed And sadly not so much Abit torn It is interesting but I wanted Pre Raph stuff From Kathyrn Hughes review of A Profound Secret these relentlessly rhetorical uestions annoying They are nothing compared with the endless unanswered ueries Dim bleby throws out in the course of this breathless book Chapter four in fact ends with three on the trot the final one of which asks urgently Was it melodramatic of me to wonder if Burne Jones could have had a premonition of Amy s fate At which point one wants to jump into the text and stamp on the uestion marks until they lie defeated unable to perform their annoying trick of gesturing towards openness while stubbornly refusing to take the argument in any particular direction

    Edward Burne Jones is really just one of many characters in this story which could easily have been written as a novel I almost forgot at times that it wasn't The fact that it is true made it much compelling and I enjoyed it uite a lot Not for everyone of course this has to be the sort of thing you like
