Pure Escapist Reading
The action alternates between Ludlow (very near to where I live) and London. Catherine Alliott’s descriptions were wonderful. I ‘felt’ the clean, fresh country air which contrasted with the noise, smells and hustle and bustle of London. One ‘felt’ freeing, the other stifling. I much preferred the Ludlow location.
The book had many humorous moments that kept me chortling. It was easy to empathise with many of the situations creating the humour, as the book was written in the first person. Grown up children, horrified at some of their mother’s antics, had me in stitches!
