Journal Entry 5 by MarysGirl from Brooklyn, New York USA on Friday, April 02, 2010

8 out of 10

I had vague memories of the PBS series from years ago and looked forward to reading this. I was not disappointed. The book was published in 1945, begins in that year, then jumps back 20 years to cover "The Sacred and Profane Memories of Captain Charles Ryder" - the subtitle of this book. The "sacred and profane" are key words - this book is about religion, in general, and Catholicism, in particular, and its affects on the aristocratic Flyte family, their friends, and lovers. The writing is delightful, the characters engaging, and the love story tragic. Highly recommend this one.

This book goes back to the 1001 Library for some other lucky reader.
