Engaging, cosy story of a successful 1930s Marriage agency start up.
From the owners’ story, the book moves into individual customers marriage stories. Gets a bit ‘bitty’ as the stories generally can’t connect (how could they?).
Also customer’s and the bureau’s class, race and religion labels are repeated without judgement. Hmmm. Not sure if half of them needed to be repeated - It feels some are included for shock value, not a whole picture. Hence a star taken off.
Overall, a very good listen despite this.
