I am fascinated by anything and everything British, so I snapped this book up in a hurry. Andrea Lucado reminisces about her time spent studying at Oxford and her crisis of faith in a colorful, beautiful way that makes you feel as if you're walking the rainy streets with her or sitting on the banks of the Thames beside her, listening to her story. This was an enjoyable read--meandering, a little confusing at times because of little rabbit trails--but very enjoyable. I wish Andrea's questions about her faith had been resolved more clearly, but maybe that's the point. We all have questions, and not all of them will be resolved in this life. But that's where faith comes in. Where it becomes real.
English Lessons is a beautiful book to curl up and read while drinking a cup of hot tea (of course) and listening to a fire crackle.
3.5 stars from me.
