The Brandons

The Brandons

Lavinia Brandon is quite the loveliest widow in Barsetshire, blessed with beauty and grace, as well as two handsome grown-up children, Delia and Francis. So thinks their cousin Hilary Grant when he comes to stay and – like many before him – promptly falls for his fragrant hostess. Meanwhile, the Brandons’ ill-tempered dowager aunt is stirring up controversy over her legacy, and Lavinia’s attention is further occupied by the challenges of making a match between the vicar and gifted village helpmeet Miss Morris, and elegantly deterring her love-struck suitors. Angela Thirkell’s 1930s comedy is bright, witty and winning.

Reviews

Angela Thirkell is perhaps the most Pym-like of any twentieth-century author, after Pym herself
Alexander McCall Smith
What sings out is the ebullience and charm of her characters, deliciously sparkling dialogue, a romping plot, her wit and gentle satire, and the escapist satisfaction of neatly tied-up happy endings
