    PDF Angela Thirkell ó Summer Half PDF/EPUB Õ ó summer book, half ebok, Summer Half PDF/EPUBThis book provides a comprehensive impression of English gentry life between wars with its descriptions of boarding schools steam trains country homes punting on rivers picnics tennis clothes cooks and housekeepers all woven together with a cast of interesting characters who engage in misunderstandings and romantic interludes while speaking brilliant dialogue freuently using literary uotes and Latin terms to express themselves Nobody does it better than Thirkell although I

    PDF Angela Thirkell ó Summer Half PDF/EPUB Õ ó summer book, half ebok, Summer Half PDF/EPUBAngela Thirkell wrote over a dozen novels set in the English countryside between the wars Almost all are reliably silly and very light The characters have grand houses and domestic staff only a few of them work for a living and if a man and a woman happen to kiss they marry soon after Light as they are her books also include intelligent sensitive observations of human behavior and references to literary classics and world history The language is elegant and the stories are tasteful and enjoyable caveat Thirkell will occasionally express a casual bigotry that is consistent with her own time and place Summe

    PDF Angela Thirkell ó Summer Half PDF/EPUB Õ ó summer book, half ebok, Summer Half PDF/EPUBI'm uite enchanted What a pleasure to immerse oneself in Angela Thirkell's 30s world of ordinary but endearing and amusing people I particularly loved the subtleness of Kate and Carter's romance He is introduced to her and he thought he saw his journey's end What a lovely and perfect description of the beginning of true love at the first meeting Kate not being a flashy beauty so the feeling is certainly not lust based I admired how well they all know their classical literature and uote from it in all the right places with that self deprecating humour that saves them from sounding stuffy or snobbish That's one of the reasons I like Dorothy Sayers' Peter Wimsey novels tooAnd I'm happy because there are at least 3 4 of these books for me to savour

    PDF Angela Thirkell ó Summer Half PDF/EPUB Õ ó summer book, half ebok, Summer Half PDF/EPUBI am finding Angela Thirkell to be my 2020 summer reads author of choice The pleasant escape to a world where young teens clear ponds for fun to escape going to church where a youth attempts to gift his beloved chameleon as a gift to his teachers despite his misery at parting with it where crouet still occurs on the lawn in fierce competition where young twenty somethings experience love and engagement where Nanny still knows best and where detested dresses are made dirty so young girls won't have to wear them again It's just a simpler idyllic time that is nice to escape to Now that we've established I enjoy escaping when I read I can share a bit about the book The book blurb leads you to think this book is about Colin Keith recently graduated from university and unsure whether he wants to join the family law practice He decides nobly to

    PDF Angela Thirkell ó Summer Half PDF/EPUB Õ ó summer book, half ebok, Summer Half PDF/EPUBMarvelous as Rose would have said ; How I missed all those people Most of all Lydia and Tony I adore themAnd Thirkell's wit simply wonderful The adventures of Hacker with the chameleon let's say it again marvelous ; You’d love the cook She’s a perfect angel and doesn’t mind drowning kittens a bit Swan and Morland dematerialised and suddenly reappeared at the far end of the room absorbed in books ‘I wish you’d split that frock for me I loathe it’Of course there was also the wisdom that is always visible in Angela Thirkell's novels When we are young we all look through our elders to see what lies beyond And when we see what is there we are the elders ourselvesOn the scale with Thirkell's books that I have read it wasn't one of the best reading perhaps because I knew what happened later to the characters So 4 stars from me but compar
