Read this brilliant book!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Brother of the More Famous Jack (Paperback)
The synopsis makes this book sound like a very ordinary romantic story, but it's much better than that. It's funny, clever and insightful, and there are lines in it that I still remember. The heroine's favourite novel is Emma, and she is a bit in love with Mr Knightley (who she sees as always appearing in doors, knocking mud off his boots ...). If you like witty stories with happy endings (viz Jane Austen) you will like Barbara Trapido.
