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

This was another book I got from a Starbucks pick of the week cards and I must say I'm pretty impressed by it. The Observations has the perfect mix of humour, emotion and suspense to keep the reader sucked in even when the book is finished. It feels as if the reader knows Bessy personally and has taken this adventure along side her. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone! Love it
