This is a story that will appeal to a wide audience with romance, comedy and mystery in a nicely mixed package.
Flora's Lot is a lovely mix of familiar Fforde components: a bit about art, a bit about stately homes, a bit about country life, and of course a character like Flora, who finds her city self mired in country life and not sure about the whole mix. Fforde has done some fine research into her heroine's new and challenging lifestyle and career, and this book should put to rest one reader's complaints that she knows nothing of 'real' country life. She seems to know quite a bit about the romantic notions we all have about lifestyles different from our own, and about our insecurities when faced with life fairly radically different from what we think it is or should be. And as always, her people adjust quite well, surprising themselves if not those around them or the reader, in being able not only to 'cope' but to shine. My only complaints about Fforde's books are, when I start reading one, I can't seem to put it down until it's finished, thereby losing a lot of sleep (I'm a slow reader). And when I'm done, I wish there was more to read (which would only make me lose more sleep or more time I should be spending on house work or something).
I've since read a few other of Katie's books and I find them all as addictive as Flora's Lot.
I recommend this book to any ol' softy!
