Review

An extraordinary work ... idyllic * ELIZABETH JANE HOWARD *
A gem of a book: rare, simple, innocent and charming. I was captivated * SUSAN HILL, GOOD HOUSEKEEPING *
Elizabeth von Arnim is a mistress of irony * LISA ST AUBIN DE TERAN *
She has a wild sense of comedy and a vision - continually thwarted though it was - of potential happiness * PENELOPE MORTIMER *
