Has an interest in Polly is so so crueli wish i could understand theo though as wish I could understand Theo though as am not sure if he alone used Polly or if his family had a hand in all of his undertakings alone used Polly or if his family had a hand in all of his undertakings the last as Polly by then had his daughters living with her It hurts me to think what heartache she went throughPolly s love of fascination with Robinson Crusoe is uite wonderful shows what reading can do to a child s mind Particularly an only child particularly still an orphan child being brought up in the circumstances Polly finds herself in I say Brava to thatHowever THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES MADE POLLY UITE NAIVE SO MUCH SO circumstances made Polly uite naive so much so even as a young adult woman she did not realise a man a poet had been in love with herI also loved the twist involving her great grandmother aunt uncle etc What secrets families haveAll in all a very touching story which I feel privileged to have read Did not enjoy the book one iota. In 1904 when she was six Polly Flint went to live with her two holy aunts at the yellow house by the marsh so close to the sea that it seemed to toss like a ship so isolated that she might have been marooned on an island And there she stayed for eighty one years while the century raged around her while lamplight and Victorian order became chaos and nuclear dred Crusoe's Daughter ambitious moving and wholly original is her story. Crusoes DaughterG subtle and witty I really cared about Polly and Felt Her Passions And Disappointments The Landscape Of The North Her Passions And Disappointments The Landscape Of The North passions and disappointments The landscape of the North and in Yorkshire are beautifully described and the characters intriguingI would really recommend this book it is refreshing and compelling I had not read any of Jane Gardam s books before but will do now This is a book which infuriates as the characters do not behave in any way in which you can relate to them Polly Flint is most odd but likeable and her life whilst hard and even harder to imagine is interesting I could not stop reading and went back to reread several sections Oh I loved this storyJane Gardam writes about human emotions so very well I always shed a tear or when I read her workThe characters are well drawn mainly English eccentrics who fascinate me coming from a European background as I doThe reverse snobbery by Mrs Zeit after she realises her son.
