A Moment of Silence
A Moment of Silence
by Anna Dean
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars indomitable and adorable heroine, 10 Sept. 2008
This review is from: A Moment of Silence (Hardcover)
I loved every word of this. It's clever, funny, poetic... beautifully phrased and cunningly plotted. Anna Dean seems to be having great fun exploring the concerns and language of Jane Austen's world. But for me the affinity went deeper than that. In Austen's books, great sadness is faced with pragmatism, bravery, humour, sensitivity and curiosity. Dido is just such a heroine. This is a book which you can curl up with, as a friend, a comfort and a bracing restoration of your faith in life!
