    I know I ve read this before, but I couldn t remember anything except the brass band.2013 this time I didn t remember even the brass band But that s the charm always pleasant to read, but not so memorable as to be boring.

    Very pleasantThis is a lovely book Gentle humour, Cadell s eccentric characters at their finest, a small mystery, and a delightful love story When these books work, they do because Cadell gets everything just right There is nothing exciting or moving in this plot, but in its placid way, there is not a single wrong note

  4. Kathleen Kathleen says:

    I have enjoyed these interlude readings of Elizabeth Cadell, the prolific British author whose career began in 1946, writing 53 books before her death in 1989 This novel, written in 1979, however, was the first one I thought dated, filled with gender and character stereotypes, highly predictable I still found it pleasant.

    This wasn t my favorite Cadell I ve ever read, but I liked the way that all of the various plot lines and there were a lot of them intersected in the end.
