Cheerful weather for the Wedding - Julia Strachey (Persephone)

Bought for me by Liz - for my birthday : )

A very small book - but really a beautifully written and well observed piece. The story concerns a family on the day of a young girl's wedding. Dolly - the bride, is getting ready - the family eat lunch - two cousins squabble.  There is for the reader a real sense of time and place with this novelle - you can hear the china clinking, imagine the chintz, but it is maybe only after you get right to the end you realise just what perfection this little book is.

Thanks Liz - loved it : )
