She certainly makes sense. I know have read a number of books fairly recently which have left me thinking that the ending is either unsatisfactory or has been rushed - almost as though the writer was having to stick to a word count.
I loved this book and its wisdom has provided me with a great deal of food for thought as well as the need to find those of her books I haven't yet read!

I loved it too, Liz, and you're right to mention its wisdom. Also, Penelope Lively writes so lucidly and beautifully that she is pure pleasure to read.
