Journal Entry 1 by wingeponine38wing from Winchester, Massachusetts USA on Monday, March 02, 2015

8 out of 10

This is an insightful and amusing read about two people who have remained friends since their Oxford days, a tutor (Jane) and her student (Prudence). Jane is married to a vicar and they've just moved to a new vicarage in a small village full of interesting people who are not all that eager to accept the new vicar and his family. Prudence is still single, living and working in London. Though she has no lack of suitors, no one has proven to be The One, and Jane is always trying to remedy that.

Wonderful cast of characters, from the annoying to the flaky. I laughed out loud several times and there are a couple sentences that I still chuckle over. Pym has a talent of taking you by surprise with a witty line when you least expect it. I really enjoyed this and heartily recommend it.
