    I really enjoyed this book though I know Hugh Walpole isn't everyone's cup of tea A very old fashioned style of writing but I love thatMaggie Cardinal's father dies very suddenly leaving her alone not terribly upset as he never showed her much love She is 'odd ' a little strange' 'misunderstood' a captive in a world where others fit in but she doesn't I found it compelling rooting for things to work out for her to stop her feeling so 'different' She goes to London to live with her aunts but is very unhappy always a little strange and alone you will have to read it to see if things get better for her and join her on her journey to happiness

    The only reason not to give this five stars is that there isn't a single character with whom I would want to spend even five minutes He has such a genius for people real people with all their flaws just that in this particular novel there are perhaps too many flaws The monstrous Grace awful Amy the collection of creepy ministers of religionit goes on I so wanted Maggie to find happiness but nonetheless didn't like her much Don't be put off by this being the third in a series there is only a very peripheral involvement of a character from the previous novels and the fact of some of them being Trenchards doesn't matter


  4. Hanna Hanna says:

    Strikingly vivid characters; such a well crafted depiction of moods places and feelings Very compelling I read the whole second half in one sitting


  5. Kate Kate says:

    I found this in a pile of old books and for the first time ever read it without having any idea about what the storyline would be Although I did not find myself gripped by the first few chapters I soon found myself enthralled Despite the main character Maggie being rather cold and irritating by the end I was wishing for her happy ending

    Good old Walpole very gripping although I found the end a bit inconclusive
