Gold

I recently had a mini-rant about buying books from the bargain section of Barnes & Noble.  In the interest of fairness, I need to take that back.  I read three bargain books in a row that were quite good, and this was one of them.  In fact, I’d even say that Gold broke my streak of choosing bad fiction books.  Thank goodness.

Past Imperfect

This book felt glittery and hopeful and wistful.  It was a love letter to a different time that lamented the best of what was lost while acknowledging how much was also gained.  If you are interested in British society and aristocracy, the swinging 60’s, or gentle (and sometimes harsh) character studies, this book is for you.
