House-bound | Winifred Peck
4 posts | 1 read | 7 to read
'House-bound' was written during the war and the war is both in the background and foreground: one of the questions that the reader is asked throughout the book is - what is courage? Winifred Peck is also funny and perceptive about Rose Fairlaw's decision to manage her house on her own.

You‘re lucky to have #dinnerateight when the war has caused a shortage of domestic servants and your thus forced to keep the house entirely on your own. Such is the plight of our protagonist Rose, who is determined to maintain her own home as her part in the war effort. This book is a perfect combination of humor and levity. #timbittunes

LeahBergen I need this one! (Oh, look... already stacked 😉). 3mo
Reviewsbylola 😆😆😆 Happens to the best of us. I actually bought a Persephone I already had when I went to the shop. It‘s difficult to keep them straight. @LeahBergen 3mo
Cinfhen Sounds like an entertaining read 3mo
emilyhaldi I can't wait to buy 10 more of these next week 😁 3mo

The ladies of Edinburgh are able to #sleepingmydayaway or pop bon bons at will until the war hits. Unfortunately they are then unable to get household help, and must then administer to all the household needs themselves. It sounds like it has quite a bit of humor—hopefully I‘m able to get to it soon!


zsuzsanna_reads I heard it's good. 8mo
Cinfhen The original Housewives 😂😂sounds promising 8mo
emilyhaldi There seem to be a lot of good Housewife-focused Persephones ☺️ 8mo
