If you enjoy L. M. Montgomery and Jane Austen you are sure to love this book. This novel is the journal of a budding author much like Emily Starr. The story wasn’t what I’d expected, but is set in the 1930’s and follows a family who are quite poor living in a run down castle in the English countryside. I loved how the narrator “captures” the vivid details of everyday life and draws you into the story.
