This book, the tale of China Court -- a country house in Cornwall -- and the five generations of family who have lived in it, is such a charming, lyrical read. This is not a book to charge through, although the story is certainly compelling, but the writing is so magical that it deserves to be meandered through. This book lifted me right out of my life when I was reading it and if this is the sort of book that appeals to you, I think it will work its magic on you too.

Charming novel of an English family through 5 generations. Well written and a quick read.
