Genre: short stories, prose, fiction, classics
(I received an ARC from the EDELWEISS in exchange for an honest review.)
I have probably read Mansfield before in high school or university but I cannot remember at this point. At least, the stories in this novel did not spark a connection. Yet, Mansfield's writing feels familiar. I really enjoy the way she brings characters to life and gives the reader a sense of the time and place where these characters live. I read this book over two days picking it up when I had short spurts to read. I would say this is a good book for the nightstand when you need to read but don't have the time to give a novel a chance. I am looking forward to reading more of Mansfield.
