Book Review: Excellent Women by Barbara Pym

Excellent Women (Penguin Classics)Excellent Women by Barbara Pym

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I enjoyed this book.  The writing was interesting, the plot was subtle, the characters were interesting. 

"'Nothing can ever be really the same when time has passed,' [Mildred] said, more to [her]self than to them, 'even if it appears to be from the outside.  And didn't I tell you ...there will be new people in my house and things won't be at all the same.'"

People change through circumstances.  Events in one's life lead to change, sometimes subtle, sometimes great. 

The library has three other Barbara Pym books and I'll be picking them up to read at one point or another.
