Book Excerpt: 
. . .haps, in case my aunt doesn’t care for the gooseberry-tart, you might bring a lemon-squash, please.’

Now, I had never met a lemon-squash personally, but I had often heard of it, and wished to show my familiarity with British culinary art.

‘It would ’ardly be a substitute for gooseberry-tart, miss; but shall I bring one lemon-squash, miss?’

‘Oh, as to that, it doesn’t matter,’ I said haughtily; ‘bring a sufficient number for two persons.’

Aunt Celia came home in the highest feather. She had twice been mistaken for an Englishwoman. She said she thought [p10] that lemon-squash was a drink; I thought, of course, it was a pie; but we shall find out at dinner, for, as I said, I ordered a sufficient number for two persons, and the head-waiter is not a personage who will let Transatlantic ignorance remain uninstructed.

Aparte de encontrarme con una joya editorial (la portada y las ilustraciones interiores son un auténtico lujo), la historia que se presenta es corta, bonita y muy divertida, llena de causalidades y de personajes pintorescos, como la cegata tía Celia.

Es un libro con un argumento ligero, divertido y muy corto! Pensaba que me duraría más, pero la verdad es que se puede leer tranquilame te de una sentada.

Una novelita intrascendente con la que pasar el rato. Se le notan los años. La edición es preciosa.

This is cute romance between a young woman travelling through the most important Cathedrals in England with her aunt Celia, and a man she encounters by chance in one of them. They keep meeting behind the most useless chaperone ever. Sweet, funny and a quick read.

No conocía el libro hasta que d’Època anunció su publicación y si es que hay algo que me gusta de esta editorial, junto al cuidado que ponen en sus ediciones, es que siempre me descubren nuevas lecturas.
