Reserved for the Summer themed bookcrossing Meetup.

This is a loosely a series, but mostly with the place and sometimes characters overlap. Anyway the all read as stand alone, I'd say this was middling in terms of quality. Light, cute read.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

This was the first book by Angela Thirkell I'd read. It's charming. Whether you'll like it or not depends on whether you like charming.

I do, so I rather enjoyed this. Everyone ends up happily, we're privy to the conversations between the donkey and the cat, and the village play is performed successfully. Thirkell reminded me a bit of Dodie Smith, but not quite as light or witty.

To be released at the monthly York Bookcrossing meetup.

Good to see you tonight, lass - and thanks for the book, even if it has been hanging around for two and a half years awaiting delivery . . . Only joking, I'm pleased have it - and good luck with the preparations for moving, all the culling and sorting that have brought this off the shelves and back into the light of day . . . See you again soon! I love charming and I love the cover art and VMC books are a recommendation in themselves, so this definitely looks like my sort of novel! Thank you :-)
