"The plot of The Road to Lichfield is exquisitely constructed, and the language shimmers. . . . A journey of self-discovery-the narrative urges the reader to contemplate the larger context in which people everywhere live out their individual dramas."-Wendy Martin, San Francisco Chronicle"A flawless novel about the role of the past by one of Britain's best."- Donna Seaman, Booklist (starred review)"Like all of Lively's best novels, The Road to Lichfield contains beneath its modest veneer great depths of intelligence, perception and feeling, not to mention a thoroughly believable and interesting cast of characters."-Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World"Uplifting energy . . . It breathes life into characters and seizes readers. . . . A refreshing validation of the positive aspects of change, and invigorating trust in caprice and whimsicality make The Road to Lichfield stand as a testament of confidence in human nature. Penelope Lively's spirited observations, her vivid and concise style, increase our enjoyment of the book."-Ladyce Pereira-Leite, Raleigh News & Observer
