The Quilty Reader

Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.

Miss Marjoribanks - Margaret Oliphant

I actually have no idea where I am in this book, since I am reading it in one of those Delphi Collections. Based on the chapters, I'm guessing I am well over halfway (I am on Chapter 39 out of 52).


"But when all that was required was skill and self-possession and courage, Miss Marjoribanks knew herself too well to be afraid."


I really love this book. Miss Marjoribanks is hilarious - managing, competent and fairly well convinced that she knows what is best for everyone, including herself.
