    Summer Half Epub ¹ Paperback summer kindle, half kindle, Summer Half PDF/EPUBI'm quite enchanted What a pleasure to immerse oneself in Angela Thirkell's 30s world of ordinary but endearing and amusing people I particularly loved the subtleness of Kate and Carter's romance He is introduced to her and he thought he saw his journey's end What a lovely and perfect description of the beginning of true love at the first meeting Kate not being a flashy beauty so the feeling is certainly not lust based I admired how well they all know their classical literature and quote from it in all the right places with that self deprecating humour that saves them from sounding stuffy

    Summer Half Epub ¹ Paperback summer kindle, half kindle, Summer Half PDF/EPUBMarvelous as Rose would have said How I missed all those people Most of all Lydia and Tony I adore themAnd Thirkell's wit simply wonderful The adventures of Hacker with the chameleon let's say it again marvelous You’d love the cook She’s a perfect angel and doesn’t mind drowning kittens a bit Swan and Morland dematerialised and suddenly reappeared at the far end of the room absorbed in books ‘I wish you’d split that frock for me I loathe it’Of course there was also the wisdom that is always visible in Angela Thirkell's novels When we are young we all look through our elders to see what lies beyond And when we see what is there we are the elders ourselvesOn the scale with Thirkell's books that I have read it wasn't one of the best reading perhaps because I knew what happened later to the characters So 4 stars from me but comparing with the genre definitely 5 star book
