It’s as if Flora Thompson is applying for a job as the main character in his book and he’s not sure whether to give her the position.
In his acknowledgements he does refer to the help of a friend in the editing process, describing it as an act of “literary origami” – I don’t wish to be unkind but I think this shows in the final result.
Also very interesting about the reception the book has had with the public, in the way that some readers were more than willing to interpret it as a manifesto for a return to an idealized past.

It is a good book and reveals a lot about Flora and her life...an interesting read for anyone who wants to know more about Flora, or even for people who like the Victorian era.
