Reading group selection – (Bookgroup List) – I first thought it was going to be some stupid romance,  but it’s somewhat better than that – in part because much of it is told from several pretty intimate points of view,  and in part because of Vietor’s very nice narration.  It gets slow in a few places but overall it’s quite interesting, though.  I’m not sure if it feels “dated” or not (1978) – it does feel old-fashioned in an American version of  Elizabeth Taylor’s novels or Penelope Fitzgerald, or Barbara Pym – others.  >>>>MORE>>>>
