Great book if your into this sort of thing.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Provincial Lady - The Complete Series (Kindle Edition)
I have a very battered paperback version of this book, which is much used. Mainly because it a pick up and putdownable book which loses nothing in between readings.
Humorous and ironic in almost equal measures, its description of the life and attitudes of the times makes me wonder about the inverted snobbery of today.

Good review, My Dad's family are of the snobby variety & I've always been the outcast Black sheep of the family as I won't conform to there petty status of class.
You have to see them to believe how pathetic & sad they really are thank god I got what they haven't, Individuality,
Great informative review Kerry.

Hi Timelord how you doing? Can empathise to some degree. Had a grandma who was always worried about what the neighbours thought. Therefore had to have elocution lessons so I wouldn't have a Mancunian accent, cos she lived in Cheshire. Families are weird aren't they?!

Relapsed last week when Thunderstorm blew up my Sky HD, Blu Ray player & Router things like that trigger depression & result in mental health episodes of me becoming withdrawn & detached.
Thankfully everything sorted now, I doubt I'll ever understand this illness just when you think your doing good I was bulldozed.
Hope your ok my dear.

Hi Timelord. that was a bummer. Experienced something similar many years ago when lightning struck the telephone booster box. Blew the bloody thing off the wall then bounced round the living room wiping out the T.V and Stereo system! I slept through the whole thing! Much more expensive these days with all the stuff we have tho.
It doesn't take much to throw one off balance does it? For reasons I don't know I am having intermittently good and bad days at present and not sleeping particularly well.
Still it will pass. Im glad you are feeling better, it doesn't do to become too isolated, its a hard place to climb out of, as Im sure you know.
Keep on keeping on.
Stay safe. K
