really liked it

** spoiler alert ** A comic look at some of 18th-century England and Scotland. A novel in letters, the voices and personalities of each character are quite distinct and entertaining--an astute and benevolent curmudgeon, an educated young man with good intentions, a love-struck young woman raised in the restrictive English way of the time, a spinster aunt somewhat addled by her loneliness and her second-class status, and several servants in various positions. A pure comedy, everyone gets what they want in the end.
