The Wolves of Willoughby Chase

From the diary: “May 31, 1982

“I’ve been reading The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken.”

I’ve read Wolves at least twice. It’s set in an alternative England of the 19th Century. Aiken went on to publish several books set in this imaginary England, though not always involving the same characters. I tried to keep up. But I haven’t read an Aiken since The Stolen Lake or maybe Dido and Pa. I wonder if I remember enough of the setting to try the new one out this year?
