What a nice story set in England during the 1930s. While the ending isn't all nicely tied up in a perfect bow, each character discovers many redeeming qualities about themselves and growing up. Cassandra, one of two daughters to an eccentric author deemed a genius after the publication of his first book and subsequent book tours has been in an isolated melancholy state for the past few years and left his family in poverty. I Capture the Castle is narrated by 17 year old Cassandra as she and her family struggle to regain their footing in society.
