Kindle. Read for Ali's Hardy Reading Project.

I enjoyed his second novel greatly, in which sly Fancy sets the men of various levels of village society against each other; an improvement on his last melodramatic outing, although I felt it was a bit slight and quick to read (hard to tell on a Kindle, though!). Lovely countryside descriptions, although not as intimately woven into the plot as they will be. I'm really enjoying seeing the development and progress of his writing, reading them in order like this!
