Summary

In the captivating novel 'Raymond' by John Lang, readers are immersed in a tale of love, betrayal, and redemption. The book is written in a modernist style, with fragmented storytelling and shifts in perspective that emphasize the complexities of human relationships. Lang skillfully weaves together themes of identity and societal expectations, keeping readers engaged until the very end. Set against the backdrop of a changing world, 'Raymond' offers a poignant reflection on the nature of self-discovery and personal growth. The novel's lyrical prose and vivid imagery create a rich reading experience that lingers in the mind long after the final page has been turned. John Lang, a prolific writer known for his introspective works, drew inspiration for 'Raymond' from his own experiences navigating the complexities of love and loss. With a background in psychology, Lang brings a deep understanding of human emotions to his writing, allowing readers to connect with the characters on a profound level. His nuanced portrayal of the protagonist's inner struggles adds depth and authenticity to the narrative, making 'Raymond' a truly compelling read. I highly recommend 'Raymond' to readers who appreciate thought-provoking literature that delves into the complexities of the human experience. Lang's masterful storytelling and insightful reflections on love and self-discovery make this novel a must-read for anyone seeking a profound and moving literary journey.

     The proposal is fake, but the feelings are real. 
    June Green is heartbroken when her boyfriend gets engaged to another woman mere weeks after their breakup. She says a little too much to the dad of the two adorable children she nannies, and he decides to help her save face... by faking a proposal in front of her ex. She's always been quite fond of Roland, and can't pretend he's not attractive, but pretending to date your employer seems like a risky plan.
    Successful businessman and young widower Roland Kirk should know better than to get mixed up with his children's (inconveniently attractive) nanny. But when June's cruel ex starts baiting her right in front of him, he can't help himself—he not only claims he and June are an item, but stages a full romantic proposal. June goes along with it, and he's sure it's only to get back at the guy, but when their faked moment leads to a very real date and an unexpected, spine-tingling kiss, things get even more complicated.
    With the risk of messing up his kids' one good relationship, the stakes are high. But neither one of them can ignore the intensity of their attraction...

    Four charming, witty novels—including The Nutmeg Tree—from the “highly gifted” New York Times–bestselling author of Cluny Brown (The New Yorker).   A master of the twentieth-century comedy of manners, British author Margery Sharp has been praised as “one of the most gifted writers of comedy” (Chicago Daily News) and “a wonderful entertainer” (The New Yorker). Available for the first time in a single volume, this quartet of novels provides a shining example of “her brilliantly acerbic fiction . . . [and] one of her greatest talents, creating female characters of toughness and complexity” (The New York Times).  Something Light: In 1950s London, professional dog photographer Louisa Datchett has decided it’s high time she snared herself a husband. Up until now, she’s been indiscriminately fond of men, who’ve taken shocking advantage of her good nature. At age thirty Louisa is ready for someone to take care of her and sets out on her romantic quest, in this New York Times bestseller.   “Brisk, bright, sly, engaging . . . a pleasure to read.” —Chicago Tribune  The Nutmeg Tree: Motherhood was never really free-spirited Julia Packett’s thing. Following the loss of her husband in World War I, Julia turned to her well-heeled in-laws to raise her daughter. Now twenty, Susan invites her mother to France for the summer to persuade her grandmother to allow her to marry. When Julia arrives, she quickly sees that her proper daughter is mismatched with a playboy. And when Susan’s distinguished legal guardian, Sir William Waring, shows up, romantic complications ensue.   “Original, subtle, and consistently entertaining.” —Kirkus Reviews  The Flowering Thorn: In 1929 London, socialite Lesley Frewen impulsively decides to adopt an orphaned boy. Moving to the tiny village of High Westover, Lesley finds herself challenged by a whole new way of life and changed by a young boy who begins to awaken her capacity to love.   “To those who ‘discovered’ Margery Sharp with The Nutmeg Tree, the reissue of this earlier novel . . . will be good news. The city-bred-country-won theme is handled with gay humor and enough of sentiment for general appeal.” —Kirkus Reviews  The Innocents: As World War II separates a three-year-old, mentally challenged girl from her parents, a British spinster takes on the responsibility of raising her and the two grow closer. But when the war is over and the girl’s mother returns, Antoinette doesn’t want to be separated from the only person who’s ever really understood her.   “Marvelously crafted . . . believable and heart-wrenching . . . [Sharp] is an incredibly perceptive writer.” —The Literary Sisters
