Yes, I know, I was supposed not to buy any more books for a while. However, I spotted Trollope’s Miss Mackenzie for £1.99 in the Oxfam bookshop in Salisbury. Seeing as there were three other books I really wanted and didn’t buy, this is actually progress. Having greatly enjoyed Rachel Ray (review to follow), this novel looks very promising. This time he takes a middle-aged spinster as his heroine and charts her experiences in assessing the merits of four very different suitors. What larks.
