Book Thirtynine: The Pursuit of Love

The Pursuit of Love, Nancy Mitford

I absolutely adore this kind of writing, so seemingly light and trivial, but when you start paying attention you realize just how perfectly crafted it is. This is the kind of writing that makes me wish I was a better writer.

"Rawl had been a white hunter, the only husband she had ever lost respectably through death, having shot him by accident in the head during a safari."

However, it ends far sadder than I ever expected and I'm still feeling gloomy over it.
