The Brandons

By Angela Thirkell

Angela gently and affectionately portrays English country village life. In this one Mrs. Brandon, an attractive widow, who is too kind for her own good, is featured. Everyone falls in love with her, to the amusement of her two grown children. The foibles and eccentricities of the family and their friends are amusingly skewered, but only in the kindest way. The principals in the book await the demise of old Miss Brandon, whose vast fortune and crumbling old estate no one really wants. They are perfectly happy the way they are. I listened to this one from the library on Hoopla, and it was a treat. We meet Laura Morland and her incorrigible son Tony again, and I hope I will meet The Brandons again.
