These extracts from Frances war diary present an intimate and vivid picture of their life at Ham Spray in Wiltshire , which was a refuge to a wide range of friends, including many of their fellow 'Bloomsberries', as well as a stream of refugees and the dispossessed. Frances's diaries give a candid, intimate picture of their domestic upheavals and rich intellectual life, while also noting her sharp observations about nature and world events.show more
