The views expressed in this book are so prejudice, ageist and middle class. it drove me mad but I had to plough on because we had chosen it as our Christmas Book Club choice. At least it will provoke some lively discussion but honestly the attitude to Pat are beyond.
This book was chosen for our local book club. Its far too long to tell a predictable ending and packed with long passages where the characters discuss historical infomation. I think the author was indulging her own fantasy. Hope she enjoyed it because I was bored rigid.
