I am presently reading the third in the series, and have found all the books so far quite charming. Rather like our own "Larkrise to Candleford". My only problem was finding so many Americanisms, and lapses of full research into English customs and language. Lemonade was not an easy drink to come by at that time as the fruit could only be grown in glass houses: the village and farming communities could not have afforded such a luxury. Lunch basket auctions never have been a custom here: We visit friends and relatives, and never use the term "visit with". We are just invited to share a meal, or a cup of tea. Okay, so I may be arrogant,and would make a mess of a novel of life in 19th century America, but the constant references do become tiresome after a while. However, the different characters were brilliantly crafted. I particularly loved Mr Trumble. A good read, and I look forward to the next in the series.
