Just received this hat and it's very disappointing. The picture makes it look as if the crown is firmly shaped--also the search word "cloche" let me to the product; but it is a glorfied baseball cap. Cute, but casual....Read more
I only wish I knew more unmarried women to whom I could--tactfully--give this serious, thorough, and at the same time mightily entertaining book. Luckily, its audience need not be limited to those who are still seeking their "happily ever after." Any fan of Jane Austen (and those seem to constitute quite a crowd) or interested (perhaps discouraged) observer of the current social scene will find ample food for thought. You may even discover some new insights and keys to improving your own character! It all goes down with a spoonful of heartfelt and often amusing literary sugar--pop culture references, personal anecdote, and juicy, almost David-Foster-Wallace-level end notes. (That's a compliment, I hasten to add: don't you ever turn to the end notes and feel let down to see just bare citations?)
Although the course of my own love life ran pretty smoothly, I wish I had read the advice about pursuing rational happiness (instead of vague, "of course I want to be happy," hoping for happiness) when I was a teenager. And, having spent a lot of time in college beating myself up for my interest in relationships (including buying, reading, and feeling bad about a book called _Educated In Romance_) I would have been saved a lot of heartache and confusion had I read Kantor's clearly expressed assurance that human relationship IS the foundation of life happiness, and a natural preoccupation for a 20-year-old woman.
Finally, this book isn't just for women: it includes a lot of intriguing, nearly-forgotten, and _realistic_ insights about what constitutes good and wise behavior in a man as he relates to women. After all, happily ever after happens not just for Elizabeth Bennet, but also for Mr. Darcy.
This is a great addition to your cookbook library if, like me, you are greedy for ideas on integrating the Catholic liturgical year into your family life and traditions. It will be of particular interest to those with British heritage, as it explains many customs and provides recipes peculiar to Irish, Scottish, Welsh, but especially English traditions....Read more
