+A period novel, a one-sided love story set in early twentieth century Cambridge.
+The absurdity of Fred's Cambridge life is set against the harsh realities of Daisy's existence, and the two form an unlikely pairing.
+The story has some twists and turns, and I enjoyed it -- but I'm not sure I "got" it.
+I think there's a deeper theme here, but I didn't get it.
+It's only short, so I'll keep it and maybe re-read it sometime.
+
+Side note: I have no idea how I got this book.
+I found it in my bedroom in Cheltenham, but I have no memory of receiving it and nor does anyone else.
+The world moves in mysterious ways...
