Rumer Godden was a highly decorated British writer, and this book is one of her most lyrical. While her descriptive powers are truly amazing, she never sacrifices plot. The riveting story has the children falling under the spell of a man who is not at all what he pretends to be. His infatuation with the protagonist's lovely sixteen-year old sister, who is coming into her own as a beautiful young woman, creates incredible tension as the story progresses.
Gorgeous and romantic, this is a book that reminds you of what really good writing should be.
A movie was made of this book in the 1960s with Jane Asher. It is a coming-of-age book.
Kept my interest and learned a couple of French words.
It is about an English family who vacation in the wine country, however the children are left to themselves after their mother takes ill. The father is not with them as he is at work. It is based on reality but is a work of fiction
It is very descriptive enabling you to feel you are on the trip with them.
The girls live in a hotel along with an assortment of characters-some are quite dubious. Just like real life.
