Who Knew One Book Could Cause So Much Chaos? Barbara Bunde is in a bind. Times are harsh, and Barbara's bank account has seen better days. Maybe she could sell a novel ... if she knew any stories. Stumped for ideas, Barbara draws inspiration from her fellow residents of Silverstream, the little English village she knows inside and out. To her surprise, the novel is a smash. It's a good thing she wrote under a pseudonym, because the folks of Silverstream are in an uproar. But what really turns Miss Bunde's world around is this: what happens to the characters in her book starts happening to their real-life counterparts. Does life really imitate art? A beloved author who has sold more than seven million books, D. E. Stevenson is at her best with Miss Buncle's Book, crafting a highly original and charming tale about what happens when people see themselves through someone else's eyes. "Love it, love it, love it" "There are no vampires, no faeries, no weird creatures, just a sweet story about real people living in a world I've always dreamed of."—Reader Review

Most of the books I have read from the 1930’s have been Literature with a capital L – Grapes of Wrath, Tobacco Road, etc. So I was expecting this bit of fluff to be amusing at best. I was surprised by an absolutely charming, enjoyable and all around lovely light read. The language was not too arc...

4.5 Delightful book
This 1934 novel has a plethora of characters inhabiting a small English town. The descriptive language and characterizations are done with a wonderful sparse tone that speaks volumes. "Johnson’s dictum that nobody but a donkey wrote for anything except money was as true today as it had ever been ...
