No Found Return of Love is the third Barbara Pym I have read, after Excellent Women and Crampton Hodnet. All three books are equally good. Dulcie Mainwaring, the protagonist in No Fond Return of Love, is another Excellent Woman. There are also churches, priests and Learned Society. Barbara Pym surely knows the repressed English middle class well/5.
