Mrs. Tim Delights Again 16 July 2013
By Miss Ivonne - Published on
Format: Hardcover
How had I forgotten how enjoyable Hester Christie was? D.E. Stevenson's Mrs. Tim novels recount ordinary life -- if during trying times; consequently, not a lot happens in Mrs. Tim Gets a Job. But, I promise, it won't matter.

Naturally, as per the title, Hester takes a position as an assistant manager at a manor-turned-small hotel near Edinburgh. During the course of the novel, one marriage breaks up while another seems imminent, thanks to some help with what seemed to be a doomed romance. The Christie children, Bryan and Betty, seem terribly grown up. Hester crosses paths again with the lovelorn Tony Morley, now a brigadier general. But all in all, the enjoyment for the reader comes from the delightful and realistic characters and the small but amusing incidents that happen in the course of everyday life. If that sounds dull, I promise you, it's not! I devoured the novel's 282 pages in less than two days!

Those who have read the previous Mrs. Tim books will understand: Some of the situations are funny, some sad, but I was so enthralled that I began the next -- and, sadly, final -- book in the series, Mrs. Tim Flies Home, as soon as I finished this one.
