Not my favorite book by far but it a good historical novel depicting so well the evilness of the early English and life in a class based society.. makes me wonder what the British had that made them feel like they were above Everyone else in the world...

Well. This one's lovely for its historical significance and accuracy, but wow. Cecily is such a stuck-up beyotch, even though we knew she was going to be -- how could she be so cruel? *coddles Gruffydd* And then the novel's end (and by "the novel's end" I mean the last page) was oddly abrupt. It makes me wonder if the unfinishedness is on purpose or not.

A great historical novel about growing up in a class based society. Told from two points of view - the priviledged and the not so priviledged. Also shows the evilness of the British Empire at its worst. This book would make a modern girl really appreciate what she has in todays society - regardless of class.
