This is a charming story from a time gone by, and will never come again. WWI London, Spinster of twenty five and wounded solder. As well as a love story, the book gives us a look at period London England that is absolutely authentic. Wonderful descriptions of people and the way life was lived then. Romantic as ever could be and everyone kept their clothes on, unlike today.
"And they all lived happily ever after....". From her childhood, Patricia Brent has never been an ordinary Victorian spinster. She's 24 and has never been courted, and really doesn't know anything about love. She's been brought up outside the box, and she' b-o-r-e-d with her life. So, in a type of comedy of errors, this spinster catches the eye of Lord Peter, and the remaunder of the story is letting him go until he catches her: kind of "go away closer" It is a sweet book. You find yourself wanting to shake everyone within the book to see if they actually get what we as observers see almost from their first meeting. These two are meant for each other in a world trying to be mannerly as bombs go off around then, chasing the strata if society away. I loved this book. However, NOOK has trouble with the firmatting and sometimes yo skip the first page of a chapter and have to go searching for it with the search tool
A light, sparkling story set in WWI London. In order to halt the catty remarks of her fellow boarding-house residents, single Patricia persuades a complete stranger to pretend to be her fiance for an evening out. To Patricia's chagrin, he decides to make the charade come to pass, enlisting the aid of everyone around Patricia. Hilarity and awkward moments ensue, creating a story mixing the comfortable humor and romance of Anne of Green Gables with the wit of Oscar Wilde.
