A charming and intelligent comedy. We follow the two sides to Arabella’s life, her teaching a creative writing class, which is made up of quite an eclectic bunch and the relationship she has with her dying mother who she visits in a nursing home. Thoroughly enjoyable and touching.
Despite being named after a Georgette Heyer heroine, would-be novelist Arabella's life is not what it might be. Thirty-six, twice engaged but still single, none of the New Yorkers on her Creative Writing course show any signs of novel-writing promise -- but then, to be frank, neither does she. However, hope, and love, may be closer than she had realised -- and, who knows, maybe even inspiration.
