But the story, written in the first person, leads one through scene after scene that evokes a chuckle and a smile at the blindness of the main character. What a fun book! The narrator has a kind of sarcastic or cynical tone to her reading that fits the main character's attitude.

s, there will be twenty when she forgets. Quite right, of course! Quite natural, and wife-like, and just as it should be, and only a selfish, ungenerous wretch could wish it to be otherwise. I wrenched myself out of the aunts' clutches yesterday morning on the plea of going home to tidy up. Though the wedding took place from their house, all the preparatory muddle happened here, and it will take days and days to go through Kathie's rooms alone, and decide what to keep, what to give away, and what to burn outright

The opening lines of a book are very important for catching the attention of the reader. The best examples are: "Call me Ishmael." "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."

The Lady of the Basement Flat could be added to this list:

"At three o'clock this afternoon Evelyn Wastneys died. I am Evelyn Wastneys, and I died, standing at the door of an old country home in Ireland...a trembling treble voice whispering in my ear - 'Oh, Evelyn, promise you will not be unhappy!'"

Twenty-six-year-old Evelyn and her younger sister are orphans, with only a pair of elderly aunts as family. When Evelyn's sister marries and leaves for Canada, Evelyn is at a loss with what to do with her life. Living with those aunts is not an option!

Then she has a wonderful idea. All she needs now is the courage to carry out her plan.

I have a number of favorite lines from the book. The one that doesn't give away any spoilers is: "Oh, how many mysteries there are around us! How wonderful, how absorbingly interesting it will be, when the time comes, to hear the explanation of all that seems so tangled to our present understanding!"

The book was very easy to read. No long descriptions or monologues. I didn't notice any troubles with the Kindle version. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

Was truly surprised how much fun this book was to read, it has many elements that feed an active imagination. For examples, have you ever wanted to not look like yourself to be able to hear what the people you knew actually thought of you, or share a wonderful house somewhere special with your favorite friend or to be able to do good deeds for those in real need? This book has all that wrapped up in a well written romance storyline with a satisfying ending.

It was a fun read. Interesting way to lead into a romance.

I loved this "vintage" book. If you enjoy books written during the turn of the century this is a well written book of this type. There is a coincidence that leaves you scratching your head but that is expected in a book written in this time period. Great light read and fun book.
