Unanimous agreement that this book is a wonderful read. We gave it one of the highest scores amongst our club reads to date. Very funny, clever and a great escape to the country - even deeper and darker than here in West Devon!
This book was winner of the 1933 Femina Vie Heureuse Price, and is a wickedly funny portrait of British rural life in the 1930s. Flora Poste, a recently orphaned socialite, moves in with her country relatives, the gloomy Starkadders of Cold Comfort Farm, and becomes enmeshed in a web of violent emotions, despair and scheming, until Flora manages to set things right.
