I loved this book. It was just what everyone said it was, a good read and a story that draws you in. The story is told mainly through letters sent back and forth between the "author" and the members of the literary society. Not a totally original concept, but the author made it fresh. The characters are wonderful and I felt like I was part of their little community. When I turned the final page I felt it lent itself well to a sequel ... I hope there is one forthcoming.
