Anything by any one of the Mitford sisters is witty and delightful, especially these two novels.

The Weird Sisters ~ Eleanor Brown. The Andreas family is one of readers. Their father, a renowned Shakespeare professor who speaks almost entirely in verse, has named his three daughters after famous Shakespearean women. When the sisters return to their childhood home, ostensibly to care for their ailing mother, but really to lick their wounds and bury their secrets, they are horrified to find the others there. See, we love each other. We just don't happen to like each other very much.

TBR (to be read): Katherine is Anya Seton’s novel about medieval England and the romance between Katherine Swynford and John of Gaunt. It's been enthusiastically recommended to me and has been listed as one of the top works of historical fiction, ever.
