I couldn't put this book down, as I got so caught up with the characters. It was sad and funny, but left you with a feeling of so many frustrated lives. The contrast between India and America was fantastic and very thought - provoking.

The Fox in the Cupboard: A Memoir by Jane Shilling
Jane Shilling brings the English countryside to life in this unusual account of her learning to ride and hunt. Her descriptions of the Kent countryside and her feelings for her son are unsurpassed.
