    The J.M. Barrie Ladies' Swimming Society Reviews

  • Judy

    This was an easy read. An architect comes to England to do work on an old home called Stanway House. It is where J M Barrie wrote Peter Pan. She comes across a group of women in their eighties who are...

  • Pam Asberry

    From the back cover:"Joey is in the Cotswalds to oversee the restoration of the Stanway House – the stately home that inspired J.M. Barrie to write Peter Pan. The project is far from easy. The local...

  • Miranda

    This is just a light easy to read romance story. In hindsight I am not sure why I expected something more challenging. Maybe some post-feminist analysis of the lost boys? Very light on JM Barrie, his ...

  • Jennifer

    Decent enough book. If I'm on the fence of how to rate a book, I rely heavily on how the book ended (not necessary what happened but how the author brought the story to the close); this was not a grea...

  • Beth

    This is simply a quick, fun read. Not deep, but well written, and interesting, especially for Anglophiles like me. I won't give away the plot, but I appreciated the Peter Pan connection hopping in and...
