The village of Worsted is staging Hippolytus under the aegis of the indefatigable Mrs. Palmer. Given this background, it seems inevitable that the most absurd romances should bloom, as indeed they do. Thirkell's novels provide a scrutiny of British manners in the most entertaining doses.

I have been re-reading Angela Thirkell for decades and still prefer the pre-WWI novels, with this one possibly my favorite.
Review: August Folly (Barsetshire #4)User Review - Alisha - Goodreads
