it was amazing
bookshelves: old-favorites
Read in June, 2012

I first read this book almost 20 years ago - and loved it then as a teenager. So when I saw a copy in a second hand bookshop for $1 I had to buy it. Often when you return to an old favourite they have somehow shrunk with time but not this. MB is like putting on a comfortable cardie on a cold day and reminds me of hours spent reading in an armchair in our house which was tucked away out of site and where I could lose myself in a book for hours on end. This was one of her first and although her books are often derided for being too formulaic - there are times when you need not to think too hard and enjoy the story. For that reason alone she deserves a place in your library as a treasured and reliable friend.

Liz Ransom I agree with you. I first read it several years ago and just picked it up to reread. This and Circle of Friends are my two favorites!
