I am half way through Venetia Kelly's Travelling Show and I am thoroughly enjoying this story, it does ramble but you don't feel like you are a being taken off course, as the digression all seems to make sense a bit further on into the story. As I am reading I feel like Ben McCarthy is sitting opposit me just telling me the story. It feels so personal and it has been a long time since a story has felt that personal. I have Irish Uncles who tell stories in this manner and I find it so delightful and I can't wait to move on to the Matchmaker of Kenmare.

You're right, Anji, that very personal voice is a great part of the charm, and FD has a lovely turn of phrase.
