Reader recommendation: Good to a Fault More Email Save for later Saved Monitor readers share their favorite book picks. By Katie Flynn, San Mateo, Calif. April 26, 2011 Save for later Saved About video ads View Caption of Good To A Fault by Marina Endicott is like a Barbara Pym novel crossed with a William Shakespeare play. Characters abound with (mis)steps all with good intentions (well most anyway). It has a Canadian setting with gentle tone and makes a good read. Recommended: Could you pass a US citizenship test?
