4.0 out of 5 stars A good holiday read, 12 Aug. 2007
By 
This review is from: The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets (Paperback)
I was initially intrigued by the title of this book; it reminded me of a song I like. I received it in a book swap, and although it starts slow, I was glad I persevered.

I finished it fairly quickly, and afterwards it didn't really seem like much had happened. It is set in post-WW2 Britain, in the 1950s, and the main character, Penelope, is 18. By chance she meets Charlotte Ferris and her cousin Harry, and this book documents their adventures at Penelope's medieval mansion Milton Magna and the fancy parties Harry is invited to. Penelope is asked to act as Harry's girlfriend to make his ex jealous while he tries to win her back.

This is basically the entire plot of the book, which doesn't sound very exciting written down, but it's brilliantly written, and keeps the reader captivated. The characters are all believable and very likeable, too; I shall keep a look out for any other books by Eva Rice. I'd definitely recommend it, perhaps more for an entertaining holiday read than a 'serious' book.
