Bit slow starting -but a gentle sad story - with analysis of a character that strikes home in places - I guess we've all had unrequited love at some time in our lives... passages of humour - I guess in a way it's a black comedy story. I enjoyed it.

What I loved about this book was the clear insight into every character's mind - not just the main character. Their perception of her was so at odds with what she felt they thought. You may hate the idea of a woman being regarded as a spinster on the shelf but that's how women were viewed then. Such a wonderful story and truly amazing writing - a real classic. I love a story that makes me think and stays with me and this did.

The author shows a lot of insight into the dilemma of a sad, single and lonely woman in the 1950's when life was a bit different.
Well written and readable.

This was recommended by American-UK writer Scott Bradfield. Fabulous read, and helped me with my own novel-writing too. In my copy, there are also insightful "extras" from Brian Moore. When he wrote this, he was quite lonely living in a caravan, but don't expect something miserable... there is plenty of humour.

So enjoyed this book. I just wish I could get hold of a copy of the film adaptation starring the wonderful Maggie Smith!
