AN Imaginative Experience book That may be unfair. Anna Massey was not a good choice as the reader.

AN Imaginative Experience book. Reading Mary Wesley is a pleasure akin to reading Elinor Lipman or Barbara Pym or Jane Austen - here's an author with a sharp moral vision and comic instincts skillfully bringing two lonely good people together. She's perhaps a bit sharper with her villains - they are funny but truly awful, which I enjoyed in a guilty sort of way, not wanting to believe there are that many truly terrible people in the world (though I may get there yet).

An Imaginative Experience Hardcover – 27 Apr 1995. by Mary Wesley (Author). Ever since reading 'The Chamomile Lawn', probably Mary Wesley's most well known book, I have actively sought out her other books. She had quite a life, and when she came to begin her career as a novelist in her seventies, there sure was a lot of life to draw upon for her story telling and her characters.

Written by Mary Wesley, Audiobook narrated by Anna Massey. The last thing her adoring public would expect is that she craves some peace and quiet. The humdrum hamlet of Walmsley Parva in the English countryside seems just the ticket. Must read Historical Mystery.

A traveller on an InterCity train returning to London smells the burn of the breaks as it hisses to a stop in the middle of the countryside. He sees a white-faced woman leap from the train and race to the aid of a sheep stranded on its back, unable to rise, in a field. Righting it, she turns, and he sees her face is full of tragedy. And not, he thinks, because she pulled the emergency lever and will face retribution. Considering tragedies of his own, he does not intrude, but the image lodges in his mind: a strange but familiar despair, unable to ignore the desperation it recognizes in others. From these seeds Mary Wesley draws out a plot of unforgettable impact—of loss, of release, of a necessarily comic acceptance of fate, of love—the "imaginative experience." Rich in character and wit, and powerfully moving, this is a novel of the heart's pain and deliverance.

Who makes the most of dreadful circumstances , has a talent for gardening and meets a Prince Charming. The author also interleaved her view of racism.
Madis
This author is wonderful. Her stories are staged mid 20th Century. They are filled with English humor and wit. The main character's in all her books are string women. She is a feminist of her day

I love Mary Wesley's writing and am thoroughly enjoying this book. Her characters are different and interesting and finely drawn ... I never forget who she is writing about.

I read this book years ago and loved the quirkiness of it, then forgot who the author was. I have a new tablet and decided to download a book by this author whose works I love. Imagine my delight when I realised that I had found the story I had lost, written by my beloved Mary Wesley.

Excellent story telling as usual for Wesley.

Mary Wesley is always such a joy, and "An Imaginative Experience" is no exception. Love it, love it, love it
When I started reading this book, the style seemed old fashioned to me, either because it was written back in the 70s or because it takes place in the 70s. But that turned out not to be the case. One description of it refers to it as "a comedy of manners" and I guess that helps explain it. It is very British to me, and very good.

There is a lot of dialogue here, dialogue that seems real to my ear, and subtle humor. But there is real drama also. It is a story of how people deal with bad things that have happened to them. The two main characters have to learn how to deal with grief of two very different sorts, but first they have to allow themselves to feel that grief. They help each other do just that.

I won't say any more than that as I don't want to deprive anyone of experiencing this wonderful storytelling without much advance knowledge. Mary Wesley lived an interesting life and didn't publish her first novel until she was 70 years old. I have read that her biography is just as interesting as her own novels. This is the first book of hers that I have read, but I plan to read more. So should you. But start with this one and decide that for yourself.
