    mobi Ë Love Among the Ruins Download ↠ Angela Thirkell Love Among the RuinsOnly to be attempted after gaining familiarity with all Thirkell's previous works Pretty much ALL of her characters are present and it is no mean feat to unravel themHer post World War II books have much of a wistfulness and dissatisfaction than her earlier books and this one seems rather elitist as well Writing in a world that was fast losing its traditions and rigid class barriers it's easy to tell that her characters and probably she herself felt rather lost and just plain tired Not that its tone is all that depressing it's still a comedy of manners with an engagement at the end But it certainly has a different feel than for instance Wild Strawberries

    mobi Ë Love Among the Ruins Download ↠ Angela Thirkell Love Among the RuinsI alternate between re reading all the Trollope novels and re reading their modern seuels the novels of Angela Thirkell set in Trollope's imagined world of Barchester next train stop Winter Overcotes and peopled in part by descendants of favorite Trollope characters They are silly witty intelligent and inspiring as good men and women struggle to make the most of a world that was once idyllic and privileged and is now burdened by war era rationing crippling taxes and the end of the old way of lifeAnd of course there is always a wedding somewhere in every one of her stories

    mobi Ë Love Among the Ruins Download ↠ Angela Thirkell Love Among the RuinsWell I think I picked the wrong book to begin with Angela Thirkell It was hard to keep all the character’s straight especially since there are so many and some show up only for a page or two never to return I didn’t realize that this was part of a series and this book is preceded by 16 others I just liked the title “The Ruins” surely references the political and economic situation faced by Britain after WWII Thirkell often uses the term “the outbreak of peace” to characterize what she saw as the failings of the Labor government and the slow decline of the upper and middle classes post war I was reminded of the Ayres family in Sarah Waters’ The Little StrangerIt’s not a doom and gloom story however it is acerbic
