Description
All the talk in 1947 is of rations and privation, in this 16th Barsetshire novel—until the pretty war widow Peggy Arbuthnot and her sister-in-law Editha arrive, creating quite a stir among the bachelors and matchmakers of Barsetshire society. Hopes will be nursed, hearts will be broken, and silly behavior will be pointed out for being exactly what it is in this delightful comedy of manners. As the daughter of Margaret Burne-Jones, granddaughter of Pre-Raphaelite painter Edward Burne-Jones, and first cousin once removed of Rudyard Kipling and Stanley Baldwin, Angela Thirkell (1890–1961) was steeped in British art and culture—though for her, writing was a necessary way of supporting herself and her sons. Like all of her Barsetshire novels, this one is a smoothly written, satisfying little bonbon, flavored with just the right amounts of satire, wit, and romance, and can be read on its own—though we're sure that once you've finished it, you'll want to snap up all of them.
