The Semi-Detached House (Dodo Press)

The Semi-Detached House (Dodo Press) - Emily Eden, Elizabeth Klett I have read that Emily Eden is considered the Victorian Jane Austen. She also reminds me of EF Benson in some of those scathing characterizations. However, Eden lacks the depth that both Austen and Benson bring to their work. She also does not create the kind of characters that are beloved through generations. That said, this is a solid story and a very welcome retreat into civility and sensibility.
