Truth to Tell (Hutchinson). The Lovers of. Pound Hill.

Truth to Tell (Hutchinson). Further down the street in Hill View House Miles Whittington flitted and darted around his beamed and much furnished sitting room like a hornet in heat, or so thought Dorcas Fairbrother, his secretary (Miles was old-fashioned enough to call her that rather than the altogether more charming term Personal Assistant). She sat at her desk in the far corner, very still, very quiet, and tried to concentrate on Miles’s long letter to the local council. This concerned the Gnome of Pound Hill and money – when did his correspondence with the local council not?

I don't like all of Mavis Cheek's books, though I think she's a very gifted writer - sometimes the themes just don't appeal to me. However, I LOVE the Lovers of Pound Hill. Not only is the prose Absolutely Brilliant, the characters are beautifully fleshed out and the outcome just makes me feel cozy.

I don't like all of Mavis Cheek's books, though I think she's a very gifted writer - sometimes the themes just don't appeal to me. There are a lot of alleged "feel good" books out there, but most are by terrible writers like Jan Karon or Debbie Macomber. For some reason, more skilled authors prefer tackle depressing subjects.

When city girl Molly Bonner arrives in the village of Lufferton Boney, she creates quite a stir. With her non-country-style boots, determined manner and alluring looks, she sets off a wave of intrigue that ripples through the lives of everyone there, from Julie the barmaid at the Holly Bush to antiques dealer Dryden Fellows and Montmorency the cat. For Molly is a girl on a mission: to discover the truth behind Lufferton Boney's most notorious resident, the giant (and slightly obscene) Gnome etched into the face of Pound Hill.

Each of these books is wickedly funny in Mavis Cheek's special satirical British style and has given me countless smiles, chuckles and even laugh . She doesn't want to reveal the secrets of the Gnome on Pound Hill too soon. I really enjoyed this story and loved the characters.

Each of these books is wickedly funny in Mavis Cheek's special satirical British style and has given me countless smiles, chuckles and even laugh out loud moments. They have been read and re-read for the sheer pleasure and delight they give me. Her books are an indulgence for me. If only a new book could come out as soon as I finish reading the current one because Mavis Cheek spoils me for any other current writer. Dorcas whose fiancé is missing presumed dead in South America and who works as a secretary for the unpleasant Miles.

A fabulously reviewed comic romp set in the English countryside by queen of social satire Mavis Cheek. When city girl Molly Bonner arrives in the village of Lufferton Boney, she creates quite a stir. With her non-country-style boots, determined manner and alluring looks, she sets off a wave of intrigue that ripples through the lives of everyone there, from Julie the barmaid at the Holly Bush to antiques dealer Dryden Fellows and Montmorency the cat. Nobody knows exactly what she's up to, but one thing seems certain: her presence will alter the lives and loves of the village and its people for good. For Molly is a girl on a mission: to discover the truth behind Lufferton Boney's sinister and most notorious resident, the giant (and slightly obscene) Gnome, a fertility symbol etched into the face of Pound Hill. As she works her way into the villagers' hearts and lives, Molly needs to keep one step ahead. She has a few demons of her own to settle, as she pursues the wonderful secret that only the Gnome can reveal. Mavis Cheek is on brilliant form in this warm and sparklingly witty novel about life and love.

I wait for each new Mavis Cheek book and buy them as soon as I learn they are available.

This book did not disappoint me. It is reminiscent of Mavis Cheeks' earlier Pause Between Acts, Parlour Games, Dog Days and Mrs. Fytton's Country Life which are my very favorites from her.

Each of these books is wickedly funny in Mavis Cheek's special satirical British style and has given me countless smiles, chuckles and even laugh out loud moments. They have been read and re-read for the sheer pleasure and delight they give me. Her books are an indulgence for me.

If only a new book could come out as soon as I finish reading the current one because Mavis Cheek spoils me for any other current writer. Her books are intelligent, hilarious, witty and sometimes even end in a completely unexpected manner.

This book was a joy to read and I can't wait for her next offering.

Not the author's best book.

The village of Lufferton Boney has never seen anything like Molly with her red hair and short skirts. Molly is in the village to try and gain a landowner's permission to finish the archaeological excavation started by her grandfather at the beginning of the twentieth century.

Miles agrees to her request only because he sees a possible source of income in it for himself if Molly unearths some sort of treasure. He wants to be able to open the area to the public and charge admission fees. Molly wants to dig up part of the Gnome - a chalk figure of unknown origin and remarkable endowment.

The villagers are naturally curious and Molly asks for some help initially with her work but after a while banishes everyone so that she can get on with digging on her own. She doesn't want to reveal the secrets of the Gnome on Pound Hill too soon. I really enjoyed this story and loved the characters.

Dorcas whose fiancé is missing presumed dead in South America and who works as a secretary for the unpleasant Miles. Then there's Nigel and his father who run the local antiques and curio shop; the doctor and his wife and the publican and his barmaid not to speak of the vicar who feels himself a little upstaged by the pagan symbol which overlooks his church.

This is rural England at its best and most eccentric and the story shows brilliantly how an outsider, however pleasant, can seriously upset the status quo and herald any number of changes. I really enjoyed reading this light hearted story and thought the ending just finished it off nicely.
