Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

I was delighted by The Pastor’s Wife by Elizabeth von Arnim, the second book I read as part of Rachel and Carolyn‘s Virago Reading Week. In the hands of any other writer, anyone who lacks von Arnim’s light touch and gift for clever humor, this would have been a tiresome tragedy about a woman stifled by first her father and then her husband before finally being exploited by an egotistical artist. Happily, this is not that book.
