Written in 1949 it’s one of those books that people love and they pass on. It’s a coming of age story, Cassandra Mortmain the young girl is described as “Jane Eyre with a touch of Becky Sharp”.
The family have fallen on hard times and live in a dilapidated castle. Lives are turned upside down when the American heirs to the castle arrive and romance blossoms.
Great descriptions of place and the characters are all interesting and well written. Lovely read for all ages.
