    One thought on “Vittoria Cottage

    1. Sub_zero

      Esta novela destila un inconfundible tufillo british por los cuatro costados. Y me encanta. D.E. Stevenson recrea de forma sobresaliente la atmósfera hospitalaria y acogedora de un pueblecito inglés en el período de posguerra que es más bien un apasionante microcosmos donde todos los habitantes parecen conocerse muy bien entre sí. Sin embargo, la llegada a la localidad de un misterioso refugiado que ha perdido su casa tras los bombardeos altera el ambiente de calma y cotidianidad que suele [...]

      I will rate this 4 stars because it is so beautifully written and provides a very relaxing read, but it would be 3.5 for the plot, because there are not many surprises to be had. Alisha calls it a "quiet domestic novel", and I think that describes it perfectly: quietly entertaining, and so soothing. A book you can put down and come back to with no hassle. D. E. Stevenson was a fantastic author, so skilled at creating endearing characters, and even if this is not one of her best works, I certainl [...]

      I look forward to reading more about the delightful Dering family and happily I just happen to have the other 2 books of this series stacked on my shelf right now! It's going to be a nice weekend :-)NOTE:(view spoiler)[Unforeseen difficulties challenge the happiness of all involved until Caroline manages to untangle everything to the satisfaction of all. I take exception to the above statement from the book blurb. This book did not have a perfectly happy ending for all. Certainly not for Harriet [...]

      The kind of enjoyable reread where you say, "Yes, I will read one chapter before I turn out the light," and then you say, "I remember reading the book that comes *after* this one better than I recall this, so perhaps I will read two chapters," and then you read the whole book when you should have gone to sleep at midnight4 1/2 stars - nothing extraordinary but extremely pleasant.

    5. Kim Kaso

      A sweet, old-fashioned tale of life in a village, and love found late. Small things happen, and good manners and self-sacrifice impede understanding. It's all very English, and just what I needed to comfort me at the end of the day.

    6. Alisha

      This is the kind of book that to me best exemplifies D.E. Stevenson's talent. A quiet domestic novel.Caroline is a widow with two daughters and one son. They live in a cozy house in a small village. Caroline is a type of character that D.E. Stevenson does particularly well--one that somehow manages to be both naive and intelligent at the same time.One day while she's out picking berries she meets Robert Shepperton, a fairly new lodger in town. No one really knows his history. He and Caroline hit [...]

    7. Theresa

      Caroline Dering has three children: a son James, who is in Malaya for the British Foreign Service, and two daughters. Her husband has passed on, and Caroline is now responsible for the family. She seems a happy and content soul in this cosy read of D.E. Stevenson's, set in a small English village, but like all characters in a well-written novel, she has a few problems of her ownher identity has been first swallowed up by a selfish and demanding husband, and secondly by her own children.“Caroli [...]

    8. Suzanne

      I finished this today. It is a story of love and family life in post-war (WWII) England. I enjoy D.E. Stevenson's books very much. Her characters are very lifelike and the glimpse of a culture and time that I haven't experienced is very entertaining.

    9. Jeanette

      I immensely enjoyed this one. I would have to say it takes a spot as one of my favorite D.E. Stevenson novels. Quiet and simple but very enjoyable. What really made this book for me was the character of Caroline. She now holds a spot with Miss Buncle and Mrs. Tim as my very favorite Stevenson characters. Her kindness, levelheadedness and optimism just made this book enjoyable to read. The ending was abrupt and left much to be desired. Hopefully, all that was left undone in this book will be furt [...]

      Delightful autumn read. I love D E Stevenson and Vittoria Cottage did not disappoint. Always a mix of characters you love and characters you don't. Happy endings and open doors for further stories. Looking forward to the next in this trilogy.

    11. Ann

      I love D.E. Stevenson's books in general, but this one simply wasn't very well written. The story, which is set in a British village in the years after WWII, is simple enough : Caroline Dering, widowed and increasingly financially strapped, meets a handsome newcomer to the village, and begins to realize that she is not so old after all. There is something mysterious about Robert - where was he during the war? What did he do during the war? How come he never knew his London house had been bombed [...]

    12. Susan

      Widowed Caroline Dering lives in rural Ashbridge with her children. She enjoys the small events of village life even as her income shrinks in post-war inflation. She thinks she must concentrate on romance for the younger generation, until Robert arrives in town, but when she realizes that her beloved younger sister also falls in love with him, Caroline is ready to sacrifice herself once again. Sheer comfort fiction, of course, and extremely well-done, but after a while Caroline becomes a bit too [...]

    13. Linda

      Sweet, goofy, mixed-up hodge-podge of characters with lots of drama. I would have easily given it three, maybe four stars except for the (view spoiler)[ horrible ending! I can't believe the author wrote it that way. Grrr. (hide spoiler)]

    14. Beccie

      Oh yay Endeavor Press has started to make Kindle editions of D.E. Stevenson books! There are already 4 new ones out. I am a happy, happy girl. I have read them all, but to have my own copies is bliss.

    15. Evelyn Foss

      I love seeing the simplicity of post WWII English village life. Stevenson's characters come to life on her pages. I didn't like Caroline's husband, but know men like him.

    16. Helen

      This is only the third book I’ve read by D E Stevenson, but I’m finding that her novels are perfect when I’m in the mood for something gentle and undemanding, but still with convincing characters, some insights into human nature and just enough plot to keep me interested from beginning to end. Having read what other people have to say about her books it seems that they vary in quality, but I think I’ve been lucky with the three I’ve chosen to read so far (Miss Buncle’s Book, Amberwel [...]

    17. Alison Dygnas

      Gentle RomanceThis book, like this author's other books, is written and set just after the Second World War. Her romances are funny, the characters are well written and often appear in other books. They are usually either set in the Cotswolds or in Scotland. She always describes the setting incredibly well, so you can almost imagine yourself there. I have always really enjoyed reading her books and as they are not in print now, I am delighted to see them available in Kindle Unlimited. D E Steven [...]

    18. Tiffany

      I really liked some of the characters here and wished they had more page time. Especially the end! This book was an all-too-brief glimpse into English village life and a few of its inhabitants. Stevenson had a way of tying stories together that is always delightful if also predictable. This is a mid range effort, better than her 60's era writing but not as good as her Mrs. Tim or Miss Buncle writing.

    19. Donna

      I love these quiet, mid-century slice-of-English-life books and Stevenson is a master. Can't wait to read the other two books in this series.

    20. Kristin

      I'm rather annoyed with myself that I think the last sentence is not perfect, but otherwise I loved this book.

    21. Barbara

      I loved this book! So cozy and satisfying. If you like Rosamunde Pilcher and Miss Read, I think you’ll like D.E. Stevenson.

    22. Nancy

      D. E. Stevenson's writing reminds me of Maeve Binchy's books. The characters are well drawn and hardly anything happens. This book is charming, a little predictable, and very enjoyable.

    23. classic reverie

      Easy to read and another engaging family story with lots of characters and drama, post WW 2 England. Book 1 out of 3, will read the rest.
