Book Review:
Cheerful Weather for the Wedding by Julia Strachey

Title: Cheerful Weather for the Wedding
Author: Julia Strachey

Language: English
Pages: 119
Rating: 3/5

England in May. Dolly is getting ready to marry the wrong man, and we see the inside of the bustling house on her wedding day.

My very first Persephone book! Quite excited about that, I must say.

This was an enjoyable little read. It's quite charmingly written, though it took me a little while to get into. I was a little confused by all the characters at first, but I got more of a grip the further I got in.

I could very much picture the house this is set in, with all the people in the different rooms and the different floors. It feels sort of like a mix between a play and a short story.

It is very short, and not a lot happens. We don't really get a chance to dig deep, and I thought that was a little sad. I wished we'd had a little more time getting to know these people.

Overall, I enjoyed it, and I would recommend it if you like short, play-like books with beautiful writing.

You can get this book at The Book Depository* or from Persephone Books.
