    "One Italian Spring"

    This is one splendid book. The writing is beautiful. The author created word paintings or a kind of musical composition but that is like going to see "The Girl With a Pearl Earring" by Johannes Vermeer and saying it is a pretty painting but this is the best I can do. One feels as if you are seeing and feeling with the eyes and emotions of Lucy Honeychurch, Cecil Wyse and George Emerson. This is a triangle of love muddles. The girl says yes to the handsome, rich and cultured Cecil As she grew into a self aware and confident woman, she found that he would never be able to meet her needs. To get a better idea of his character, I refer you to Charlotte Bronte's St. John Rivers in "Jane Eyre" or Mary Ann Evans (George Elliot)'s Tito in "Romula". For these men, there was only themselves with no room for the needs of another. A lighter treatment can be found in Sophie Kinsella's "Remember Me?" It must be confessed that our heroine unknowingly lies, to herself, her family, her fianc?, the man she loves. She must take back her yes and find a way to say yes to the right man while the whole world knows and approves of her engagement. It is at times, quite funny and always engrossing.

    The narrator, Rosalyn Landor enjoyed herself and made the book a joy. There is a kind of poetry in the story which she expressed as her own. It was my first time with her. She is tops.

    "Boring story good reader"

    Did not enjoy - would feel no different had it been free. No fault of the narration though.
