Angela Thirkell is a real find for me and goodness knows why it has taken me so long to discover her. If like me you love Nancy Mitford, Dodie Smith, Barbara Pym and Stella Gibbons then you should certainly give Angela's books a try. She also has a touch if P. G. Wodehouse's fabulous humour and great evocation of place and time. I'm certainly going to read her other novels now.

Readers of Thirkell will recognise a world of a golden past where social standing and small exchanges between people matter in a way far beyond relationships today. As always there are finely drawn characters, some gentle mocking of foolishness and a happy ending for at least one couple. Highly recommended for a satisfying read.

This is a lovely read. Charming depictions of a bygone era with humour, satire and wit all bundled up in a pretty good story. It is lovely that this Author is now available on kindle books. I am working my way through all the available works. August Folly another great one.

My second book by this author. I really enjoy her books. Just my cup of tea! Can't wait for the next one.

I read 'Pomfret Towers' immediately after enjoying 'Illyrian Spring' by Ann Bridge and I'm afraid this rather spoiled the novel for me. Why, I wonder, did Thirkell choose to be so bitchy about another writer's work?

I have always enjoyed Angela Thirkell's books and I very much enjoyed this one.

I've given it 3 rather than 5 stars because for me the Kindle version was disappointing. I'm unable to read the last few pages! I get a message saying that there's an error and I've followed the instructions about deleting it and downloading again, but the same thing happens. I don't know whether the fault lies with Kindle or with the publisher, but it's frustrating not to get to the climax of the book.
