What a fantastic book - even the terrible, TERRIBLE ending!!! Oh, so sad....
Bah, small towns. But boy, Florence made a run at it. Love the wry (perfect word, Elizabeth!) humour throughout, and the letters between Florence and her good-for-nothing lawyer, hah!
So I guess this would be equal parts dry comedy, farce, ghost story and town-and-country vignette, with a dash of satire. [b:Lolita|7604|Lolita|Vladimir Nabokov|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327871906s/7604.jpg|1268631] was a nice touch. Nods to Dickens throughout,too.
Lovely. Even tho' the ending was TERRIBLE, did I say? ;-)
