Riddle me this

The book I am reading right now begins by describing the heroine as “Blond and ovately willowy”.

If you think you know what the author meant by “ovately willowy”, please explain to me in comments. Extra points if you identify the novel in question.

(I am about to get on a twelve-hour transatlantic flight from Istanbul to New York so it will be a while before I can respond.)

One thought on “Riddle me this

  1. While an EU country has yet to break up, there have been enough instances of it happening and this article does not address what I understand to be the situation under international law – that successor states are obliged by all the treaties the original state was.
