8 out of 10

Together yet alone, the Misses Bede occupy the central crossroads of parish life. Harriet, plump, elegant and jolly, likes nothing better than to make a fuss of new curates, secure in the knowledge that elderly Italian Count Ricardo Bianco will propose to her yet again this year. Belinda, meanwhile has harboured sober feelings of devotion towards Archdeacon Hochleve for thirty years.
Then into their quiet, comfortable lives comes a famous librarian, Nathaniel Mold, and a bishop from Africa, Theodore Grote - who each take to calling on the sisters for rather more unsettling reasons.

Very much like a Jane Austen novel where nothing much happens apart from social events & marriage proposals.
Very enjoyable. Thanks MissMarkey.

Taken away from Sunday's meetup. Had to have this book when I saw my friend MissMarkey had registered it and also after listening to the Barbara Pym Society talk at the Oxford Convention.
