The Observations, Paperback Book

The Observations Paperback



"Vastly original. Bessy is surely one of the most striking characters in recent fiction: cynical, disruptive, tender and very, very funny." (Independent on Sunday).

It was shortlisted for the Orange Prize Scotland, 1863.

In an attempt to escape her past, Bessy Buckley takes a job working as a maid in a big country house.

But when Arabella, her beautiful mistress, asks her to undertake a series of bizarre tasks, Bessy begins to realise that she hasn't quite landed on her feet.

In one of the most acclaimed debuts of recent years, Jane Harris has created a heroine who will make you laugh and cry as she narrates this unforgettable story about secrets and suspicions and the redemptive power of love and friendship.
