    Paperback´ Patience MOBI ´ patience ebok, Patience PDFEPUBPatience is described by Persephone books as being “a sophisticated and delightful novel” it is also a gentle little comedy I’m not sure I would use the word sophisticated myself – but I do think there is a surprising sharpness to this novel which lies submerged beneath the gentle humourpatience2Patience Gathorne Galley is a perfect dutiful 19
