Some Tame Gazelle

It was odd that Harriet should always have been so fond of curates. They were so immature and always made the same kind of conversation. Now the Archdeacon was altogether different . . . ‘

Together yet alone, the Misses Bede occupy the central crossroads of parish life.

Belinda, meanwhile has harboured sober feelings of devotion towards Archdeacon Hochleve for thirty years.

Reviews

SOME TAME GAZELLE is my personal favourite for its sparkling high comedy and its treasury of characters ... She makes me smile, laugh out loud, consider my own foibles and fantasies, and, above all, suffer real regret when I reach the final page. Of how many authors can you honestly say that?
