Author: Mirianne Kavanagh
"Like it a little…"
The author Marianne Kavanagh was inspired to write Should You Ask Me by a story in Rodney Legg's Purbeck Island, and photographs in Purbeck Camera by Mike O'Hara and Ben Buxton. Some of the characters take their names from people who once lived on the Isle of Purbeck. Should you ask me is a wonderful work of fiction and an imaginary version of a past that could have happened but never did. Hilary Sheers gave her kind permission to Marianne to reproduce Vera Rich's poem Should You Ask Me which gave this brilliant novel it's title.
