Miss Buncle's Book

Miss Buncle's Book - D.E. Stevenson
Short of money, Miss Barbara Buncle needs to find a way to bring in an income. Being a woman, she's limited in her choices. She decides to write a book. This book is based on her small village. Her book, "Chronicles of an English Village" becomes "Disturber of the Peace." She did submit and her book was published under a male pseudonym.
Miss Buncle's book becomes a huge success and everyone reads it. Then, her follow villagers see themselves in her characters (their names, while different, are similar). Some don't like how they are featured. What followed was fun and interesting (at times). This was a departure from my normal fare. I thought the humor and writing a bit dry at times. Also, a little wordy at moments.
