This was charming and sweet, but had more depth than I expected. Yes, there is some romance, but it isn't the main fixture of the book. It's more a side addition to the story of the house and family. I wish the author would have continued past where the book ended, but I suppose it's more fun to be able to finish the story the way you prefer. In addition, this could definitely be counted as a historical fiction novel. I quite enjoyed getting a look at what life would have been like before the war - and then during. Interesting to see how life changed and they changed with it. Very well written, a pleasure to read (though a bit fluffy,) and even (slightly) educational.

“If strangers see you behaving like lunatics, it doesn’t matter, because they don’t know who you are. And if your friends see you behaving like lunatics, it doesn’t matter, because they know who you are.” Celia's House - D. E. Stevenson
