By Elizabeth Cadell
I remember reading Elizabeth Cadell with a great deal of nostalgia. I recently finished re-reading her Waynes of Wood Mount series, and that pretty much satisfied my urge to revisit Cadell’s thoroughly English old-timey romances but for a blog I ran across which glowing reviewed this one. I actually happened to run across this title while looking for another book in my library, and decided to re-read it. What a delight. The characters were deftly sketched, and the romance with the unusual love interest was so sweet and charming. The mystery filled out the plot nicely. This is my favorite title by Cadell, as far as I can remember. The only thing I found less than satisfactory was the planned resolution to two secondary characters futures. It was awkward and just wrong. I hope it works out.
