For me, every book is beautiful and this is one of them, beautiful both inside and out 😍 Read it last year (wish I read it earlier) & it has such an impact on me! Tolstoy‘s writing about Life, Love, Death & Politics are insightful & beautiful, so relatable despite it was written hundred years ago. And this #VintageClassics is so gorgeous!

What starts as a comedy of manners accelerates at the midpoint into a gripping psychological-noir.
Written in 1921 Elizabeth Von Arnim‘s marital-chiller Vera predates Daphne Du Maurier‘s Rebecca by 16 years and makes for a fascinating comparison.

Congrats on your Litsy milestone @DGRachel & thanks for the #ShareTheLitsyLove giveaway. The genre I love the most is not really a genre, but I call it #spinsterlit. Books featuring odd women alone; outsiders because they're too passionate, too quiet, too good. Some just want to be a witch in the woods. These are women who don't adjust to society & I find that fascinating. Recommending these books is interesting; people have varied reactions 😬
Westwood was written by the author of Cold Comfort Farm. The main character is Margaret Steggles, who everyone thinks of as a plain, bookish girl and to whom no one pays much attention.
I remember certain details of this book, but what stands out for me is that this is a book with a lot of heart. A slow burner of a book and something just a little bit different.
"Oh, Jo. Jo, you have so many extraordinary gifts; how can you expect to lead an ordinary life? You‘re ready to go out and – and find a good use for your talent. Tho‘ I don‘t know what I shall do without my Jo. Go, and embrace your liberty. And see what wonderful things come of it."

Very good. Hard reading at times but it was worth it. Even though some may find the ending frustrating it suits the story as to have 'perfect' ending would not be in tone with the book. Also I liked how the author talked directly at you making sure you are aware that certain things have been told from memory and therefore may be distorted. Recommend.📖📚
