9780099529330: The Matchmaker (Vintage Classics)

Uprooted from war-torn London, Alda Lucie-Brown and her three daughters start a new life at Pine Cottage in rural Sussex. Unsuited to a quiet life, Alda attempts to orchestrate - with varying degrees of success - the love affairs of her neighbours. Her unwilling subjects include an Italian POW, a Communist field-hand, a battery-chicken farmer and her intelligent friend Jean.

Review:

"Her character drawing is perfection, and her sense of fun too subtle to permit quotation" ( James Agate, author of Ego)

"Chipper is the word: Gibbons's heroines are plucky, determined and quietly hedonistic. But she can do melancholy with the best of them, too, not to mention melodrama" ( Guardian)

"Stella Gibbons an exception to that old canard: women can't make us laugh" ( Independent)

"The Jane Austen of the 20th century" (Lynne Truss)

"Stella is stellar" ( Sunday Herald)

Book Description:

'Her character drawing is perfection, and her sense of fun too subtle to permit quotation' - James Agate, author of Ego
