Miss Benson’s Beetle (by Rachel Joyce) … quirkly characters and a story of growth and change

I am not sure what I expected when I started reading this book.  But while it was not what I thought it be, it was an entertaining read.  I found myself chuckling at Margery’s shenanigans and her experiences as she interviews for an assistant to travel with her on the expedition to New Caledonia.

This is an exploration into growth and change.  Both Margery and her assistant, Enid, are challenged by experiences in their past and yet find themselves changed as they make this journey of discovery.

Quirky characters, an exotic location, a developing relationship, and discovery makes for an interesting read.

Thank you to NetGalley and Dial Press for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
