    Simon Brocken wishes it were still 1912 Manners were much genteel back then, the younger generation including himself were not flighty nor rude, and there were servants What he longed to return to was an orderly world No one, in Mr Brocken s opinion, had tasted the sweetness of life who had not lived before 1914 What years those were for solid comfort What servants, what meals, what excellent claret Simon meditated nostalgically upon this theme for some minutes but even dearer to his recollection was the general atmosphere of order and decorum In short, Simon Brocken liked his comforts However, Simon s world is about to be drastically changed.Having never married women were such a nuisance weren t they he finds himself saddled with the oversight of his brother s estate and even worse, his brother Mark s empty headed widow Isabel Isabel confesses to the oh so reluctant Simon that she is unable to reconcile the memory of her bad behavior from past years She is haunted by the memory of her treatment of a distant cousin, Tilly Cuff Although her mind tends to wander during church, Isabel does hear one line at the end of a Sunday church sermon, and she takes action She decides it is imperative that she make reparation and gift Tilly with the estate left her by her husband Mark Simon is extremely dismayed to find h...

    I found Margery Sharp s Britannia Mews at the library sale and brought it home as it was a youthful favorite of mine, as was the movie based on the book Though Sharp was a prolific author of adult novels, it s only her children s books that are readily available As a result I ordered The Foolish Gentlewoman, Cluny Brown and Four Gardens from used book dealers on line The first two cost under 4.00 each but the last one was almost 25 However, you can imagine how much the title appealed to me Still have to read Cluny Brown but the other two remind me very much of some of the interwar year titles published by Persephone Books They are very slow paced and I often want to smack the woman who is the main character But if you can get into the spirit of them and the culture that produced them, then the are quite amusing an...

    The Foolish Gentlewoman was Margery Sharp s thirteenth novel in a seemingly long and prolific writing career, yet it is the first that I ve read Judging by this novel alone, I feel I have made a discovery another author I will want to read of and like so many authors of this era is crying out to be re issued Today of course is Margery Sharp day, and I can t wait to read lots reviews of books I will almost certainly want to get my hands on.The Foolish Gentlewoman is set soon after the end of World War Two, when houses are still being repaired from the bombing, and young men and women are slowly picking up the threads of their lives When Isabel Brocken makes a rare visit to church, she hears one particular line of an othe...

    I wrote about this book here

  7. says:

    Somewhat dated since it was written in the 1940 s, but an interesting look at how malicious women totally changed the lives of a group of people, except for one man whose life maybe should have changed.

  8. says:

    Entertaining and funny novel about thoughtless sin and thoughtful redemption, bitter regret and remorseful gratitude.

  9. says:

    A memorable combination of shallowness and depth, both in the characters lives and the intertwining story.
