We all loved it. A book you could re-read again and again. It was very well written and description was great.

Review by North Baddesley WI Reading Group 2:
Exquisite description with an atmosphere of foreboding. Fascinating to see the girl’s attitudes and fears. Evocation of 1930s upper class life and social norms where no-one ever said what they think.
