Quotation of the Week

20th January

Had Nicholas been more familiar with rural life he would have known where, before such a social earthquake as he glimpsed, to look for the first crack. There was a meeting of the Women’s Institute that same afternoon. These meetings were at no time dull. There were too many subterranean goings-on. There was the perennial battle for leadership between Mrs. Crowner and Mrs. Pye, there was the perennial and slanderous battle between Mrs. Uffley and Mrs. Ada Thirkettle.... Every one enjoyed the meetings very much.

Margery Sharp, The Stone of Chastity (1940)
