The humour comes mostly in the form of the monstrous Ellen Semple, an interfering busy-body who insinuates herself into every aspect of protagonist Valerie Anthrope's life. Ms Wise writes her so well and convincingly that I disliked her almost from the moment she is introduced. And, very cleverly, her presence had me rooting for the flawed Valerie, much more than I think I would have if the self-styled fairy godmother hadn't been there.
Other light moments are provided by Valerie's employees, Tim and Paul, and the handsome Lex Kendall, who pursues Valerie despite Ellen's interference.
Over all, this is a well written and entertaining story with a clever ending that brings everything together. It has all the ingredients to make the basis for a comedy-drama series on television. Are you listening Sky TV?
In the novel,Valerie Anthrope (Miss Anthrope - I loved the pun) is a young woman who runs a financial brokerage. Valerie is not only serious minded and hard working but, she can also be a bit of a bitch. She lives alone and keeps herself to herself, concluding that it is best not to care for anyone. There nevertheless resides within her a deep sadness and vulnerability.
In steps Ellen Semple, a missionary worker returned from abroad, who, in true `fairy godmother' form resolves to make Valerie her next `project. Ellen senses something is not quite right with Valerie and does her best to bring light into her darkness. She secures part-time employment in Valerie's small office. Then, believing that Valerie's outlook is due to financial difficulties, she persuades her nephew Lex Kendal, a successful businessman, to put a large contract her way. When she sees that Lex is intrigued by Valerie, she warns him off her, believing that Valerie is too fragile to handle Lex's `love'em and leave `em philosophy.' Yet Lex does not take no for an answer, and Valerie falls for him. When she discovers that he is Ellen's nephew, a fact that they deliberately hid from her, she feels deceived, let down and deeply wounded. To protect herself from future hurt she dumps Lex, almost as soon as their affair has begun.Read more ›
