The Miseducation of Evie Epworth


Recommended Posts

The Miseducation of Evie Epworth is a coming of age story set in 1962 and is great fun. 16 year old Evie has to decide what she wants to do with her life while trying to free her farmer father from the clutches of his busty housekeeper Christine. It's hardly great literature but it's lively and very funny in places.

 

I have two small quibbles. Firstly in the opening scene Evie catches sight of a neighbour with a cow. All I'd say is to do that either it was a minature cow or he was standing on a box. Nuff said. Secondly, Christine gets rid of the old friendly Aga and replaces it with a smaller modern electric cooker and you can see the wallpaper where the Aga used to be. Agas are built in, they don't have wallpaper behind them. Never mind, it's still a thorougly enjoyable read.
