Format: Paperback
I ended up loving this book just as much as the first one for the exact same reasons. It is a charming story filled with humor, fun characters, and a plot with a couple of twists and turns. Now that Barbara is married she moves to a new town with her husband and so a whole new group of interesting neighbors are introduced. I loved reading about Barbara and her husband settling into married life and getting to know their new neighbors.

We also get to meet Sam, a relative of Barbara's husband. Sam is a handsome young man who comes to visit the newly married couple and falls in love with one of their new neighbors. Of course Barbara feels it necessary to meddle in the relationship and some funny scenes are the result of that meddling.

These books written by Stevenson are easy comfort reads that had me smiling the whole way through. I loved reading about the characters in this little town and the dramas that they dealt with. I highly recommend both this book and the first in the series, Miss Buncle's Book, they are both fun reads.

Ordered this immediately after reading "Miss Buncle's Book". Just as heartwarming as before, D.E. Stevenson spun more charm into this story as Mrs. Abbot, formerly Miss Buncle, moves with her husband to the little village of Wandlebury in order to avoid more tiresome bridge parties. They move into the dilapidated Archway House, which Barbara turns into a warm and wonderful home by the sheer force of her imagination, and meet their neighbors, whom Barbara catalogues with interest. It's a very sweet and cheerful book, one you won't be able to resist after the first, but lovely in its own right.

I recently rediscovered D.E. Stevenson after many years. This visit to village life in England between the wars is a charming respite from modern day life. The narration is wonderful with one reader creating voices from dignified old lawyers to irrepressible children. If you enjoyed the Cranford books or TV series, you will like these characters.

I'm so glad that a few of Stevenson's many books are back in print and on
kindle, and hope that this continues until they're all available again
without paying huge bucks for used copies. I read Miss Buncle's Book
a year ago when it came out, and loved it as an hysterically funny
book. It's about an unintentionally amusing young woman who 'writes
what she knows' anonymously about the peculiar people in her little
village in England, honestly enough that they are just about all
insulted by her portraits of their pretentions and activities, which
she doesn't even realize she seems to be satirizing.

This book continues her story, as she is married and finds her new home
in another English village and gets to know more odd and charming English
people. I think the book could stand alone, although I would have been awfully
curious to know the first part of Barbara's story. If not as desperately
funny as the first, it is somehow more solid and satisfying. It's an easy
read that will only take a couple of extremely pleasant days.

I can't wait for the third one, "The Two Mrs. Abbotts", set during
WWWII, to come out early next year, and have already preordered it.
It's definitely a guilty pleasure, reading about middle class people
with cooks and nannies and maids who are also a major part of the
story, not vague props. It's set just before the Crash that will bring
that world, already changing since WWI, down forever.

I loved Miss Buncle's Book, that one is a must read, but this second part is a boring to revisit the characters. Stevenson's writing style is beautiful but the story never captivates you until it is about to finish :-( if you loved Miss Buncle's Book lower your standards before you read this one or you will be heavily disappointed. Again, the prose is terribly good, and the characters we'll drawn, but the plot is completely flat.

It seems almost impossible to top the wonderful 'Miss Buncle's Book' that starts this series. I do recommend you read that first, since the Buncle novels do follow a sequence and the most pleasure and understanding can be gathered from them by reading them in order. What makes these books 'wonderful' is the wealth of characterization and 'telling' detail and, most of all, the amusement the author provides to the reader. In the early going, homage is paid to Dickens with a side-splitting portrait of an old-fashioned country lawyer. Set in the 1930's, these books do not seem dated except for the single aspect that plot lines include: young woman meets man, young woman marries, young family ensues. The problems the characters confronted in this story are related to setting up housekeeping, moving house, meeting new people and finding one's place in a new community. The story lines move along splendidly, with the cliff-hanger being 'who will inherit the wealthy but irascible old relative's fortune?' Most of the possible claimants do not look promising! This book is fine reading, perhaps more for feminine book lovers than for most men due to the extensive 'domestic' scenes presented.
