    1. Just a gorgeous book full of elegant, subtle and refined stories. Margaret Bonham has a divine gentleness about the way she writes and these were the perfect morsals to devour day after day. I recommend them whole-heartedly (and am embarassed I have never heard of her before).

    2. I purchased this book when visiting Persephone Books in London. The handwritten snippet about it is what caught my attention in the store; it was described as short stories that mostly revolve around unusual parent-child relationships. The stories definitely delivered on this front, and I really enjoyed about half of them ("Vicky" and "The Horse" were my favorite). The stories explore humble yet deeply interesting characters, providing a peek into their inner worlds in familiar, yet slightly off [...]

    3. Smoothly elegant short stories, most of them bringing to life unusual and/or strongminded women or small girls. Some of the women walk away from marriage either before or after the event, but there's none of the pain of an imploding relationship. Life and love is mostly taken lightheartedly.

    4. A neat collection of stories mostly about women facing a choice or at any rate an odd situation, made more odd by the brilliant, idiosyncratic characters in the stories. Not too brutal; a mashup of deliciously awkward, cool, headstrong and flawed people who come alive for a brief moment and made me smile (or was that a smirk?).

    5. This collection of short stories is like the curate's egg, good in parts, but some of the stories are definitely, to coin a modern phrase, a bit meh.
