Product Description

Review

‘Witty, romantic and irreverent… Inventive, funny and affecting, this is a story that is powerful without being mawkish.’ Daily Mail

'Along with her whip-cracking dialogue, it is quirky images that are Murray's forte … throwing the freewheeeling antics of the Happys into hilarious relief.' The Observer

'Murray manages to counterpoint beautifully the loveless, the perverse and even the wicked with all that is tender and true in human relationships.' Zoe Strimpel, Time Out

‘Woody Allen visits Cold Comfort Farm.’ Boyd Tonkin, Independent

Format: Paperback
A fantastic and funny book. Kate Happy's story, part Jane Eyre and part Paper Moon really did make me laugh out loud and then cry. A lovely read. The critics must be right. I'd thoroughly advise reading it.

HASH(0x9ca6dd74) out of 5 stars A Refreshingly Unique & Witty Novel Nov. 8 2004
By T. Pagel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This witty novel, with a unique voice and characters had me laughing out loud from the first page. The author evokes the spirit of her characters, with blatancy and biting humor. I highly recommend.
HASH(0x9c565a2c) out of 5 stars Don't waste your time Aug. 14 2015
By Lyn Ekdahl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Haven't finished reading this yet. Really struggling although I don't like giving up on a book. Not quite half way through and still waiting for the story to happen. The choice of words above to describe the book are not adequate. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. All the characters in the book are odd.

HASH(0x9c2b5240) out of 5 stars Never felt comfortable with either the story or characters Oct. 15 2015
By Blugrass - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Never felt comfortable with either the story or characters . However, some of the writing is quite beautiful or unique.
