it was amazing

I love Joanna Trollope's writing style ... the feel of the small English town, the dry humour. At first I found this book a bit sad, but by about a third or so of the way through I no longer felt this way. Big plot surprise that I didn't expect ... and a story that gives the reader a quite enjoyable visit to small English town life, and an interesting study on marriage and family life.

As an aside ... I LOVED the format of my edition of the book -- a compact little hard-cover edition about 4 x 5" in size. I actually researched what other books were available in this format, as it's just a perfect size (and sturdier than a paperback) for my public transit commute to work. Alas, not too many books are available in this compact edition. Just an aside, but it's a great format!

I'm really enjoying Joanna Trollope's books, and bought 2 more titles on a used-book shopping trip earlier this week.
