The irresistible Brandons, their friends, and their servants are full of youthful nonsense and middle-aged folly. People will fall in love with the wrong person, and all are determined to misunderstand each other.

Like Barbara Pym, E. F. Benson, and Jane Austen herself, Angela Thirkell has created a small world of her own in the English countryside. Calf love, village affairs, and literary effort are her nominal subjects; but her real interest is people, at their imperfect best.

    " Angela Thirkell was a British author, writing in and around WWII. Her books are set in the English countryside, having to do with the daily life of the landowners and those around them. The writing is clever, the humor very dry - the books are all a joy to read. "

    " this was one of my audio books. it was hilarious. ESPECIALLY if you like any sort of Victorian, edwardian, mixups in love books, like Emma or Pride and Prejudice (sarah). I am actually surprised this hasn't been made into a movie, it's THAT GOOD. "

About the Author
Author Angela Thirkell

Angela Thirkell (1890–1961) granddaughter of Sir Edward Burne-Jones, was born in London. At age twenty-eight, she moved to Melbourne, Australia, where she became involved in broadcasting and was a frequent contributor to British periodicals. She began writing novels after her return to Britain in 1930 and from then on produced a new book almost every year. Her stylish prose and deft portrayal of the human comedy in the imaginary county of Barsetshire have amused readers for decades.
