Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0881844632, Paperback)The unmarried Anne Todd, a wonderful secretary as well as a devoted bedside nurse to her decrepit mother, is an archetypal Thirkell heroine: plucky, determined, resourceful, but acutely aware that being safely married would be a better alternative. The current resurgence of interest of Thirkell, several of whose 40-odd novels of life in imaginary "Barsetshire" before World War II are being reissued, has awakened a nostalgia for the sharp glittering surfaces of her work. High Rising is Thirkell at her warm, easygoing best.

Mrs. Morland is successful, reasonably contented with her life, and certainly not looking for any romantic complications. She has enough to cope with already, what with problems at her publishers and dealing with her youngest son, Tony, passionate about trains to the exclusion of all else. So attempts by friends to promote her good friend George Knox as more than a good friend are unwelcome.
