    eBook John Coates à eBook Patience PDF/EPUB Ö à altobmen.pro patience pdf, Patience PDF/EPUBPatience is described by Persephone books as being “a sophisticated and delightful novel” it is also a gentle little comedy I’m not sure I would use the word sophisticated myself – but I do think there is a surprising sharpness to this novel which lies submerged beneath the gentle humourpatience2Patience Gathorne Galley is a perfect dutiful 1950’s wife except for the fact she has only managed to produced three adorable little blonde haired girls rather than the preferred son her husband so longs for It is hard for women today to conceive of a time when women went from their parents’ home to their husband’s home wholly naïve and almost totally unpreparedFor some women maybe many women this was still the case as recently as the 1950’s Patience an attractive twenty eight year old has been married to a man in his forties for seven years as the novel opens a marriage which was practically arranged for her by her mother Her knowledge and understanding

    eBook John Coates à eBook Patience PDF/EPUB Ö à altobmen.pro patience pdf, Patience PDF/EPUBI was charmed and amused by Patience but I didn’t really care for her I found her naivety cartoonish really over the top but I’m not sure if that was because this book was written in the 1950’s or because the author is male I very much appreciated the English humor and I just delighted in reading a Persephone novel I admit I did laugh often and even though it’s been a few days I’m still thinking about this book

    eBook John Coates à eBook Patience PDF/EPUB Ö à altobmen.pro patience pdf, Patience PDF/EPUBI was intrigued by this book The summer before last when I heard Nicola Beauman speak at my library she mentioned that she was delighted she had found a comedy that would bring something new something that she felt was missing from the Persephone list It was too early for her to share any of the details but I’m uite sure that this is it It’s the story of 28 year old Patience Gathorne Galley She’s a good Catholic girl independently wealthy with a husband Edward and three little girls Star Sue and Sal But Patience is an innocent hopelessly naive She relies on her siblings for advice Lionel is a good devout Catholic whose wife’s desertion hasn’t shaken his faith one iota Helen on the other hand is a lap

    eBook John Coates à eBook Patience PDF/EPUB Ö à altobmen.pro patience pdf, Patience PDF/EPUBI really enjoyed this light hearted and funny story of a naive wife and mother who discovers that her husband is having an affair but doesn't mind because it gives her the chance to explore an awakening of her ownI don't think it's meant to be realistic Everything's far too 'providential' and exaggerated Just an enjoyable romp
