I was not impressed with this book. Had to make myself finish it. Felt is was very boring.

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.

I wasn't able to finish this book. I may get it out again and finish it.
Just slow to get into to.

As usual, real life is duller than fiction. Why were Margaret Powell & her friend Mary so damned desperate to get married?

a more cohesive narrative than powell's first memoir but a little less entertaining.
