Anne Linton's life is split in two when her dying father, James Stanway, is taken into a nursing home in distant Lichfield. Leaving her family behind in Berkshire, she sets up camp in her father's house. As she shares his last weeks, Anne finds herself entering uncharted territory when she and David Fielding meet and fall in love. But love, like death, brings many buried feelings back into sharp focus.

Oooh, thank you ever so much Tarya & He_Ri! A signed book 😮 I absolutely love Penelope Lively's sharp insights to relationships and private lives, how she manages to say more than you thought you read. Can't wait to bury myself to the story!

Bury I did indeed. An intensive read after all, once you get to the pace of things. Lively has a way of binding things together, weaving connections and nonchalantly surprising the reader with revelations and feelings. I won't go into details, but I wish at least one of the characters had had a bit more guts instead of tiptoeing around everything. But perhaps life really is as lukewarm as in Cuxing and Lichfield?

Well I daresay this was quite posh and proper. Terribly Brittish. Was I awfully bored? No, I couldn't be bothered.

This was published in 1977 which probably explains a few things. I can't quite grasp the reason this book was written, there seemed to be no point.

If you love the Brittish way of speaking you might enjoy this.
