Quirky and delightful. Perhaps only anglophile book lovers will appreciate this touching, funny and thoughtful novel, but hey, that’s what I am. I loved the oh-so-English setting of the old yellow house sandwiched between the sea and the salt marsh, the cast of odd English characters, the struggles of an orphan girl trying to make her place in the world (shades of Jane Eyre), the keeping-a-stiff-upper-lip attitude towards each World War...it was lovely and sad and probably best read on rainy days.

I now have Robinson Crusoe on my “to read” list…can’t believe I’ve never read it.
