Bored with the everydayMoreBarbara Pyms early novel takes us into 1950s England, where life revolved around the village green and the local church-as seen through the funny, engaging, yearning eyes of a restless housewife Wilmet Forsyth is bored.

Bored with the everyday routine of her provincial village life. Bored with teatimes filled with local gossip. Bored with her husband, Rodney, a military man who dotes on her. But on her thirty-third birthday, Wilmets conventional life takes a turn when she runs into the handsome brother of her close friend.

Attractive and enigmatic, Piers Longridge is a mystery Wilmet is determined to solve. Rather than settling down, he lived in Portugal, then returned to England for a series of odd jobs. Driven by a fantasy of romance, the sheltered, naive Englishwoman sets out to seduce Piers-only to discover that he isnt the man she thinks he is.

As cozy as sharing a cup of tea with an old friend, A Glass of Blessings explores timeless themes of sex, marriage, religion, and friendship while exposing our flaws and foibles with wit, compassion, and a generous helping of love. The most underrated novelist of the century . . . The subtlest of her books-the sparkle on first acquaintance has been succeeded by the deeper brilliance of established art. -Philip Larkin [Pym] makes me smile, laugh out loud, consider my own foibles and fantasies, and above all, suffer real regret when I reach the final page. Of how many authors can you honestly say that?

-Mavis Cheek Barbara Pym is the rarest of treasures. -Anne Tyler My favorite writer . . . I pick up her books with joy, as though I were meeting an old, dear friend who comforts me, extends my vision and makes me roar with laughter.
