Until recently I had never heard of Margery Sharp or her book, The Nutmeg Tree. But I'm so glad I stumbled across her and her writing.
The author wrote this book in 1937. From almost the first word you are grabbed by the heroine of the novel, Julia Packett – and thoroughly entertained and engaged by her.
Julia is kind-hearted, impetuous, and perhaps no better than she ought to be. A charming book that I heartily recommend to you.
