Here is the fourth and final episode of ‘The Young Visiters’ by Daisy Ashford, who was only 9 years old when she wrote this novel in the late Victorian era! I’ve loved seeing the society, relationships and interiors of the time through a child’s eyes, and hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

For those of you who are in social isolation, here is an escape to another time and place 😊 I’ve split the book into quarters, so this is the last of four videos, which together constitute the entire novel, unabridged. For those of you not interested in audio books, don’t worry, I’m continuing to create all of my usual vlogs of chateau life, and am uploading nearly every day during the lockdown in France.

A very special thank you to all of you who have become patrons of The Chateau Diaries. As you can imagine, your help means more now than ever. Because of you, we’ll be able to keep living at the chateau and creating videos even though our chambres d’hôtes income has been decimated by the coronavirus. I’ve been overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity. On behalf of this beautiful chateau that will continue to survive and flourish because of you, thank you!!!
