I ADORE THIS BOOK. I first read it when I was a very young lady, in my 20's, and the romance of the time period as well as the genteel nature of the characters made me long to join them. The portrayal of the love and concern among the townfolk, and the various twists in the plot make this the PERFECT summer read. When you finish this novel you will feel certain that finding true love is an experience to be cherished and savored. Absolutely Delightful!
I don't feel the photo shown as the cover is appropriate - my impression of the novel was a much earlier time, perhaps 1905, or as late as 1915. Definitely not the 60's as the photo implies.
