Through Connemara in a Governess Cart based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Two Anglo-Irish cousins take a tour through Connemara in the late 19th century, riding in a governess cart drawn by a mare named Sibbie. While there are some amusing moments, I found a lot of the "wit" in the book to be rather condescending, as were most of the descriptions of the locals. Then rather pompous tourists and visiting upper crust anglers, on the other hand, generally deserved the barbs flung at them. It may just be me: I didn't find the Miss Read series very interesting either. Perhaps this kind of 'observation' novel just doesn't appeal to me.
