      The first thing I did after I finished this phenomenal book I searched for Taylor s other books I think it says all.It is a beautifully written book, a brilliant novel I was I am still enchanted with a love story So poetic and tender My plans for today are to hang about hoping for a glimpse of her, to have my heart eaten away by the thought of her to feel my blood bounding maddeningly, ridiculously, like a young boy s to despair to realise the weight of my misery and hunger with each step I take [...]

      In this, her sixth novel, Elizabeth Taylor took the bones of a fairy story and re set it as a very human story, among other human stories, in an English seaside town.Vinny, the hero, is visiting to offer help and support to an old friend, Isabella, who has been widowed He does the job beautifully and Isabella, anxious about growing old on her own, fancies that she is beginning to fall in love with him.Her son, Lawrence, on leave from the army, is less impressed.And Vinny is falling in love with [...]

      Vinny is a quiet, sensible man.While staying at an English resort he looks out and catches sight of a mysterious beautiful woman walking along the sea shore.For the first time in his life he falls in love.This is a story of bitter secrets from the past and a secluded life.Can Vinny change all this I loved it, one of her best

      Already well wrapped up in this.e writing is brilliantThis is a fantastic book and I would give it 6 stars if I could So glad I have discovered this overlooked writer A very subtle tale, she has an incredible ear for dialogue me real LOL moments

    5. Hilary says:

      A funny and clever look at relationships and weaknesses Some interesting and realistic characters, written with a dry sense of humour A witty observation about cauliflower cheese at the start of the book

      Did you ever see that wonderful movie Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont Well, I did and so did my dear friend Sue who discovered that it was written by Elizabeth Taylor And so a new author opened up for us From the listing, it looks like Ms Taylor wrote over 25 books before she died in the 1970s I am so looking forward to making my way through them.

    7. Roger Pettit says:

      Given that Barbara Pym is my favourite novelist, it s perhaps not surprising that I enjoy the writing of Elizabeth Taylor They are very similar authors Both deal with the anxieties, the insecurities, the loneliness and the poignancy that form a large part of all our inner lives Their particular canvas is the parochial minutiae of a certain type of middle class existence and the melancholy and sadness that all too often come with such a life But, despite the fact that many of their principal char [...]

      Really enjoyed this novel Didnt think i would and only read it because of a recommendation from a friend.I am not sure that i can name any novelist Taylor resembles although i can see why Jane Austin is mentioned I also feel that Wharton is a good comparison point as Taylor essentially binds her characters via a web of rules of engagement and expectations.Taylor s strength is description, there are passages which you want to read outloud because Taylor is laser sharp and forensic in her use of w [...]

      I loved Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont but I found this book disappointing I couldn t warm to any of the characters.

    10. Patricia says:

      There were lovely pieces, some poetic natural description and funny but sympathetic bits on Evalie and Isabelle questing after beauty and comfort Still, I kind of trudged on to the end.

    11. Antony Bennett says:

      Another subtle, elegant story from Elizabeth Taylor laced with sharp observations and lovely touches of humour The quality of the writing is high, and several times I paused to read some of the beautiful sentences over again.

    12. Atticbird says:

      At first, I thought this book was too parochial and introspectively petit bourgeois However, it is cleverly written, well structured and shows genuine insight with a light humorous touch.

    13. Jamiedwan says:

      This was a quiet book that takes place in a quiet town but there are many secrets underneath the calm exterior Good I would read another one of her books This was mom s book from 1983.

    14. Deborah J says:

      A pleasure, as always The same feel as A View of the Harbour Bigamy Perhaps not E Taylor s thing I plan to read as many of her books as I can find.

    15. Orla Hegarty says:

      First reading of this classic writer Really enjoyed her style I look forward to .

    16. kp says:

      Another finely observed tale of that manages to be both whimsical and bitter, romantic and satirical, compassionate and sceptical.
