A lovely read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Narrow Margins (Paperback)
While the bare outlines of Marie Browne's story - family finds itself hard up, so moves onto a boat - sound straightforward enough, this wonderfully entertaining book brings the very unstraightforward details to amusing life.
Dragged from her consumer-oriented, Jimmy Choo-worshipping existence, Marie has to navigate spooky gothic locks, terrifying urban moorings and the dreaded dark Braunston Tunnel, with only a small flatulent dog, small noisy child and reassuringly capable, tea-fuelled, husband Geoff for support.
This book's enjoyable from start to finish - highly recommended to anyone after an engaging, laugh-out-loud tale of life in the suddenly-slow lane.
