This is my favorite of Charles Garviceís books. Iíve fallen in love with Nell and I crave to live in a place like Shome Mills. Itís a pleasure to visit a earlier time when truthfulness was important and women still blushed , but Iím glad that we donít have the social protocols anymore that caused Nell and her man Devon so many hardships.
