Wondrous Words Wednesday - January 26, 2011

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Kathy aka Bermuda Onion where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading. Feel free to join in the fun.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER by Jacqueline Winspear

I tell you, I'm finding more words in the Maisie Dobbs words I don't know. I didn't know Dekko either.
