I read a lot of Barbara Pym a decade or so back and loved her restrained prose and the now archaic attitudes and values of the characters in her books.
They are books for a particular mood, prim, gentle and mannered and I will enjoy reading them again.

This is a genuine bargain for anyone who appreciates the acute observation and simple, elegant prose of Barbara Pym with her special talent for revealing archly the supreme silliness of much of every-day life.

I had read previous reviews extolling how great these books are, reader, they are true.
If you want to recover the fading childish memory of being gripped by a book then look no further.
You get a treasure trove of books for the price of one and you have the discovery of Barbara Pym to unravel. She is all that is light, wry and comforting. Barbara Pym's book capture a 50's world of faith, faithlessness and fickleness in a delicious cupcake for you to consume at your pleasure. Enjoy!

This pack of books is to be a Christmas present as the person they are for was born in Yorkshire. The author comes highly recommended as being an extremely good writer who writes about the funny as well as the tragic parts of life.

fantastic value for these lovely books about rural England and the people who inhabit it. Quirky characters abound in these gentle novels
