Welcome to The Idle Woman This is a place to indulge enthusiasms and pursue dreams. It embraces art, historical fiction, Baroque opera, Vikings, the Renaissance, Ancient Persia, Italy and a good deal of travel to museums and galleries around the world. And I’m always looking for new recommendations of things to read, see and visit. The best place to begin is the blog, where you’ll find my most recent posts to give a flavour of the site. Thank you for visiting, and I hope you enjoy it!
