Part of the Furniture.

Part of the Furniture. London looks wonderful by moonlight,’ one of them had said, ‘an austere mix of charcoals and greys, secret, mysterious-’. Already the memory of their voices was fading. There was the distant crump of guns and simultaneously the sound of bombers droning up the Thames, guided to their target by the treacherous moon. Shivering, she turned up the collar of her coat.

Part Of The Furniture book. Mary Wesley has written many more books (some of which I also have at home) which I fully intend to read sometime soon. I would recommend this book for frazzled brains – something gentle to sooth the soul. And an ending that had me hooting with laughter!.

A beer, please, landlord. Jonty stared at the rows of bottles behind the landlord’s head. You don’t sound enthusiastic’ Francis watched his cousin’s beer froth into the glass. I am quite glad to get back. Jonty accepted the proffered tankard. Come on, you were so keen to get home. Jonty let out an exasperated sigh. It’s all changed, nothing is the same. They carried their drinks to a table and sat. Francis said, ‘Tell m.

It's difficult to define exactly how I feel about this novel, so I'll use the classic pros and cons method of reviewing. On the positive side, I found the descriptions and historical details to be vivid, successfully transporting me to the place and time. There were flashes of humor and clever dialogue that surprised me in a good way, and I enjoyed Juno's growing rapport with the people and animals on the estate where she ended up.

Now for the negative factors. The author spent too much time on side characters' POVs, which didn't add much to the story. In contrast, she raced over sections that I wanted to savor or delve into more thoroughly. The primary relationships felt hurried, the writing barely scratching the surface of what could have been the most meaningful aspects of this novel.

The main character's motivations were sometimes hard to grasp, especially in the beginning. I wanted to understand her, and yet I often felt I was viewing her through obscuring fog. She seemed excessively naive about sex and birth, considering she spent time as a child working on a neighboring farm. It simply didn't ring true. And then the ending arrived, strange and sharp, leaving me quite ambivalent about the whole thing.

I'm not sorry I read A Piece of the Furniture. It held my interest and offered some delightful moments, especially in the second half. However, I don't think I'll be trying anything else by this author.

Kind of a sweet story, with some dark moments. I liked the characters, but the ending was just too abrupt. It seemed like the author just wanted to deliever a bit of shock ending, but it fell flat.
Zeks Horde
This book is one of the best if not the best romance I’ve read this year! I found it by accident and am so glad I did. I couldn’t put it down so I read all night. The characters,her descriptions of people and places are on point. This includes the animals since much of the action takes place on a farm. The WWII Britain is so vividly captured it’s like watching a PBS period drama. I’ll have to read more of her novels after having discovered her.
Yellow Judge
I was simply entranced by this author’s telling of these stories, the vulnerability of these characters and their simple acceptance without judgement. We should all be fortunate enough to experience the nurturing soul of this valley and it’s human kindness in a desperate period of history. A heartrending love story.
Kikora
This is a fast read and able to keep my attention. I enjoyed the details and culture of England during the 1940's. it is a bit of fluff. Good escapist fare.
BroWelm
Unusual characters, very British, and a delightful twist at the end. This is not what one would expect of a novel with a WWII setting in England.
A somewhat unrealistic love story, well written with snappy dialogue and some interesting plot lines. Until the end, I didn’t realize it was a tale of revenge.
Charyoll
Very believable. I wouldn't be surprised to find that this is based on actual experience, but it is both sad and encouraging. Good can triumph and does, given perseverance and a little luck.
Mary Wesley is one of my favorite writers. She didn't start writing until she was in her 70's. Some of her characters are in another one of her books - grown up - or before their deaths. I implore you to try 1 or 2 of her novels & I think they may leave an indelible memory... Lynne from Sellersvlle.
