A Few Green LeavesA Few Green Leaves by Barbara Pym
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Brilliant! I think of Louise Penny and wonder if she's influenced by Barbara Pym's writing since there is a strong similarity in style and wry wit.

A favorite description: He was "...a sometime chaplain on the Riviera." It makes me smile.

Enchanting story of a quiet English village and "slow living", gentle, ordinary, and engaging. An anthropologist comes to stay in her mother's cottage and collects observations and experience with the people in all their individuality and complexities. This book is very charming and relaxing. I feel as though I have visited this lovely village through the author's words.

I plan to read more books by Barbara Pym. Have you read her books?

This sounds like a good read! I just started The Charm School for the July book club selection.
