The New Chronicles of Barset by Ilil Arbel is set in the year 1954, and highlights the well-bred citizens of Brasetshire as they scramble to accommodate a production of mega proportions. Miss Glamora Tudor and the new cast members are all in on the act. With characters like Jessica, Lady Norton, Mr. Goldwasser, Emma, Edmond and Mr. Alcott, the plot comes alive with the turn of each page.

In the story, Emma falls for a new beau, and is later invited on an adventure of a lifetime. The cast has a dilemma to solve with one of the leading characters and the results are hilarious and managed in grand style.

If the reader has trouble keeping up with the action, it is because the characters are having so much fun that it is difficult to put the book down. I recommend this book for anyone wanting to get away from the stress of the day, and relive a simpler and more elegant time within the pages.

After a decade of working in several NYC law departments and teaching, Poppy decided she enjoyed writing full-time. She currently works as a freelance writing consultant, and lives with her husband and sons on the East Coast.
