Palls. . .

Much ado about nothing. . . . but not as pleasant as her usual fluff. Too much time spent in the brains of people getting worked up about foolish things. Good but not stellar performance, and a weaker-than-normal-story.

- Rebecca J. Leamon

A historical novel

Books written in the 1930s have a similar flare and this one certainty did not disappoint the romantic. Somewhat slow and sometimes silly, the crushes and loves that progress throughout the summer are beautifully described. This is an honorable romance because everyone keeps their pants up and zippers zipped.

An English setting with some Victorian influences.

- Tina "I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel."
