In love with this book already...


Of the novel the Daily Mail critic wrote, 'It is quite on the cards that before long Winifred Peck will qualify as a modern Anthony Trollope' and indeed Camilla and Arthur are clearly well acquainted with the 'Chronicles of Barsetshire', casually referring to Trollopeian characters. Camilla Lacely is also devoted to Charlotte Yonge, E.M. Delafield, Winifred Holtby, Dorothy Whipple and Angela Thirkell, although for Lent she has been 'trying to do without a library subscription'.  However there is little time for reading, except during meals.
And I'm only halfway through the introduction. :)

I think you'd both love it! I'm further into it now and it's reminding me of Angela Thirkell and Miss Buncle. Bliss!
