Prudencia Prim is a young woman of intelligence and achievement, with a deep knowledge of literature and several letters after her name. But when she accepts the post of private librarian in the village of San Ireneo de Arnois, she is unprepared for what she encounters there. Her employer, a book-loving intellectual, is dashing yet contrarian, always ready with a critique of her cherished Jane Austen and Louisa May Alcott. The neighbours, too, are capable of charm and eccentricity in equal measure, determined as they are to preserve their singular little community from the modern world outside. Prudencia hoped for friendship in San Ireneo but she didn't suspect that she might find love - nor that the course of her new life would run quite so rocky, would offer challenge and heartache as well as joy, discovery and fireside debate.… (més)

We all need an awakening

The comparison between our current culture of rushing and being busy vs. times of relaxed pace and generous hospitality was beautifully done. It creates a longing for those days when we knew our neighbors and they knew us. A thoughtful book on what we think we have gained and what we have lost. ( )

This book is so sweet and charming! I am IN LOVE with this book. The main character, Prudencia Prim, escapes from the hustle and bustle of city life, and decides to take a private librarian position in a small town called San Ireneo. As soon as she arrives, she notices that the town is quite old fashioned - the completely opposite of where she used to work and live. She meets her employer, whom she eventually falls for as the story unfolds. However, her employer is oblivious to his own charm. Prudencia feels like her feelings are not reciprocated. She also makes new friends and learns about anti Thomist vs Thomist education, youth, feminism, tradition, marriage and happiness. Very romantic, you won't want to put this book down. ( )

A lovely, lovely read. Kind of Jane Eyre-ish. A very prim Miss Prim moves to a most unusual village and works at a most unusual home school of sorts, as a librarian. She encounters eccentric characters throughout, her employer-a highly intelligent but brusque Man in the Wing Chair ,(and he is always referred to this way throughout the story), strangely precocious children who quote classic works such as Dante and Tennyson, old business women who despite being 'feminists', want to find a suitable husband for Miss Prim, and a monk who 'sees inside people'. This was a very interesting, hard-to-put-down story. The dialogues were fascinating to read, I felt as though I were sitting in the midst of an old world debate team. Highly recommend! ( )

The Awakening of Miss Prim. Natalia Sanmartin Fenollera. 2013. I loved this book! It is whimsical, romantic, intelligent, a beautifully written. I wanted to start over and read it again when I finished it. Miss Prim is highly educated young woman who is very sure of herself and set in her ways. She is working in an undemanding office job. By chance she sees and add for a librarian to arrange a private library. When she arrives she finds a house full of children studying the classics and theology. Her unnamed employer is educating the children the way he’s sees fit and expects her to fit in with this eccentric group. She is immediately attracted and offended by her employer. We join her in falling in love with the tiny little town that doesn’t want to give in to modernity. Such a love story! ( )

Another re-telling of Pride & Prejudice - in the form of European chicklit- in other words all the usual love of shabby chic, traditions, tea (fortunately no cupcakes) and books, but scattered throughout are references to Greek philosophy, Russian Orthodox beliefs and a substantial number of classics. Enjoyable. ( )
