    eBook Alice eBook ✓ ↠ optionsaveurs.pro alice download, Alice MOBIThis is a novel about friendship Narrated by Margaret this is the story of Alice “my best friend; one had to have one and she was the only person in the school who wasn’t horrible” Margaret knows and loves her friend from childhood as together they try to survive school their social season love and life It reminded me of Mitford’s “Pursuit of Love” and “Love in a Cold Climate” in its description of a young woman from a relatively wealthy family trying to find an identity The similarity is stronger as the narrator is the child of an unorthodox mother who sets up few or no expectations for the narrator leaving her free to comment on another young woman Though never fast moving this book proceeds at a gentle pace as a young woman’s life and times emerges through the eyes of her concerned friend I was pleased to have the opportunity to read and review this reprinted gem from Dean Street Press
