Sense And Sensibility Meets Frazier!...

I cannot say enough good things about this novel and do not know what was in the head of the person who gave it a bad review. This is, so far, my favorite Thirkell novel, and that is saying something. Characters that leap out from the page and into your heart. Austenesque misadventures in love. And wickedly funny humor. I almost never laugh out loud at a book, but I must have laughed several hundred times at this one. Absolutely marvelous!

A historical novel

Books written in the 1930s have a similar flare and this one certainty did not disappoint the romantic. Somewhat slow and sometimes silly, the crushes and loves that progress throughout the summer are beautifully described. This is an honorable romance because everyone keeps their pants up and zippers zipped.

An English setting with some Victorian influences.

Palls. . .

Much ado about nothing. . . . but not as pleasant as her usual fluff. Too much time spent in the brains of people getting worked up about foolish things. Good but not stellar performance, and a weaker-than-normal-story.
