What a lovely book. The characters are so well drawn, and in their just post WW2 setting, illustrate the English class system beautifully. The description of rural Oxfordshire life is very evocative and I got lost in the pages of this book.

I really enjoyed about 80% of this book but felt that the ending let it down. The story is gripping and very well written but at the end it is almost as if the author loses both heart and the courage of her convictions. Sorry Sarah Waters, I love your writing but what happened here?

5.0 out of 5 stars Dorothy, I salute you, 19 Jan 2010
The Priory is, I think, may favourite Whipple. The characters are so vivid and personalities change subtley as they age, as do one's opinions of them. The author creates such sensual, detailed images of her scenes that you can almost smell the old house where the story unfolds. I do not understand why I had never heard of Dorothy Whipple until recently. I have passed The Priory on to many friends and they all agree - once you have read a Whipple you are hooked.
