A strange disappearance

The tragic, haunting story of child author Barbara Follett.

Thanks for that headsup, never heard of her before this. But want to read her books now. Extraordinary.

Baz Lurman is going to film The Great Gatsby with Leonardo DiCaprio. That could work. (Hope it doesn't have Nicole Kidman tho). But in Sydney with lots of locals, I dunno. Wrong atmosphere.

Ah, precocious children.
And Dad ran away from home.
Understandable, perhaps.
Fleeing the scene of the crime.

A very sad story.

What a fascinating story. I fear the worst happened to Barbara Follett, but I'd like to think that sometime in the future, boxes of manuscripts will be found in some farmhouse attic detailing how she went to the woods, found a soulmate, and wrote the rest of her life in anonymity.
