When I started reading this book I thought it was almost going to be the autobiography of a "Town Clerk" where there was plenty of fine descriptions and plenty of character development but very little happened. I was however very wrong and although written in a "gentle" style by the end of the book there had been, fraud a number of attempted murders and a murder not to mention a disastrous flood . This is not one of those books where the central character suddenly becomes a super sleuth, in fact she does not actually solve anything, it just happens around her. So although not the sort of book I would call an exciting page turner it certainly has a lot going for it. I particularly liked the portrayal of Mr Triggers who was continually harassing the clerk to have dunes built (Sea defenses) by the end I was feeling quite sorry for him until there was another complete twist to the story.
Well worth a read.

On the other hand, one does grow attached to the young woman despite a good measure of soppiness in her delineation. That, in addition to some aspects of her friendships, and the absence of some obvious romantic possibilities, does make reading the book a more positive experience than I would have expected, given its defects.
All-in-all, I cannot be confident that my star rating has any meaning: it is the kind of book, I suppose, which is heavily dependent on the mood in which it is read and one's personal reactions to the disjointed organization.
