The Lemon Jelly Cake based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This was one of the funniest books that I have read for a longtime. Notice Helene's references to the 'hoarfrost' house! It is also a gentle book with fascinating insights into what was important to people at the beginning to the twentieth century. It certainly evoked a wistfulness for earlier simpler times when the most important thing in life was to can the best pickles. This book is a very enjoyable 'vacation' from the hectic pace of life.
I read this book in such a short time. It was funny and gave me a wonderful idea of what life was like at the turn of the 1900s. The contrast of what it was like in 1900 and the way it is now is amazing. I felt peaceful while reading this book - loved every page!!!
