Reviews - What do our customers think?
Understated, witty, penetrating  Feb 6, 2008
Friendship and Folly follows the lives of two young ladies living in England in the early 1800s. Julia and Ann, with Julia's family, relocate to London for a "London season." The Parry family's motives, however, are not entirely conventional, and their decision is misunderstood by a telling variety of people.

Allady is adept with language--the book reminds one what vocabulary is for--and her characters are enjoyable and memorable. The insights into motivations which the plot provides are at times very penetrating, yet this is accomplished in an understated way which is not preachy. The voices she creates through dialogue are well-drawn, and she can be very witty in a wry way. The reader encounters a Christian family in action from the point of view of someone who loves them and is taken in to their family life, but who does not yet entirely understand them--or herself. (Of course, Ann does learn quite a few things about herself during the course of the book!) There are also numerous unpleasant characters who remind one all too much of oneself, upon reflection. As the plot unfolds, things are not always what they appear, and love, of course, in true, mistaken, and charade forms, makes many appearances. Also of note: a gripping turn of events centers on a question of religious observance (Sunday and how it is to be employed), not a minor feat novelistically.

The Parry family does not conform to stereotypes. They are worth meeting, as is Ann.

The reader is left eager for the promised sequel.
What an unusual book!  Apr 30, 2005
Why is this book not being published by one of the monster publishing companies? It was very, very good. I've never read a novel with this style of humor or read anything that used the English language quite like this. It is similar to Jane Austin's style, but is distinctly someone else. Write on, Ms. Allady!
Allady Isn't Austen, But Who Is?  Feb 5, 2005
As a near-rabid Jane Austen fan (I won't even read those modern so-called 'sequels' or 'finishings' to her books because I think she wouldn't like anybody messing with her 'children' that way), I had, of course to try this book, whose author so clearly pays homage to the Grand Mistress. And surprise! It isn't a Wannabe--and it isn't dull! It even shows some vestiges of originality. At least, I've never read anything quite like it! And I appreciate that for once a writer hasn't attempted to bring 'modern mores' into a work purporting to be about people living 200 years ago.
