I really can't get enough of Mrs. 'Arris. She's turning out to be one of my favorite characters and her personality just jumps out at you. The plots of Gallico's novels could happen, but there is an element of whimsy and farfetched-ness (if that's word) to them that makes them like a fairytale.

In the process of reading all the Mrs. 'arris books by Paul Gallico. This one surprised me as it was darker than most of this series. Mrs 'arris is a London char who gets herself involved in all sorts of interesting situations. In this book she gets into politics. She is put up as a candidate for House of Commons (unbeknownst to her only as a spoiler in some political back room deals). When she gets elected she finds herself, for once, in over her head.
This is one of those simply-written, wonderful stories featuring a thoroughly lovable character. Mrs. 'Arris definitely stole my heart.
Dianne Oliver
these are such sweet, simple stories, but nicely written.
