really liked it
bookshelves: fiction-contemporary, coming-of-age
Read in January, 1973

What I learned from this book--how very much can be said, how much 'mood' conveyed, without overwriting. This author will never look as if she was paid by the word. I found most of her stories moving, well-written, true to the era and culture they were set in. She sometimes has her books classified as children's books because she often writes about children...which just gives me one more reason to hate categorizing books as children's books.

This was the first book I read by Rumer Godden. The best was probably Thursday's Children--I'll have to go find that ISBN so I can get it on the site.
