I had mixed feelings about this book. I could have lived without the rats and maggots! I liked the way the new labor laws turned the manor from “upstairs/downstairs“ into something that was somewhat more manageable and fair to all concerned.

jlhammar 🤣Yeah, she really gave us the good with the bad. I don‘t think I‘ll be forgetting either of those disturbing scenes anytime soon! 2d
Ruthiella Maggots and rats and pigs, oh my! She definitely showed some of the less pleasant aspects of country life! 😱 2d

batsy I know it's super gross, but I appreciated the rats and maggots for very systemically ruining all my romantic notions of country life, farming, etc. 🤣 1d

I loved this, even though so much of it was sad. It broke my heart when August said goodbye to Griselda and his home—Griselda was worth a thousand Gwens.

As @CarolynM said, it‘s nice to think that Patricia was finally going to recapture some of her old happiness.

One of my favorite books as a kid. In this special edition, I found out #Betsy-Tacy author Maud Hart Lovelace had something to do with that.

She and her husband Delos encouraged Scott O‘Dell to write this for kids rather than adults, and to make other changes, based on their expert knowledge of the children‘s book market at that time.

The English Air | D.E. Stevenson

This was my first Stevenson, and I‘m not sure it was the best one to start with, though I did enjoy it. Another Litten likened it to propaganda, and I realized it reminded me of old WWII movies (although I enjoy some of those too).

CoverToCoverGirl Interesting! 6mo
mabell Oh my 😳 I am curious about the numbers though (I‘ll have to read the article) - Catherine‘s dowry in the few millions is nothing to sneeze at and the Bates‘ income doesn‘t sound impoverished. But I guess that would still require strict housekeeping to pay for servants and home, etc. 6mo

Mr. Collins is always good for a laugh. #laughter

P. S @UwannaPublishme My mom and I used to joke that this book was about Barnabas Collins. (That was certainly the Mr. Collins we preferred. 😂🦇)

CrowCAH Gah, who would consider Mr Collins!!! I guess Charlotte did. 6mo
rubyslippersreads @CrowCAH Charlotte was desperate. 😏 6mo
CrowCAH @rubyslippersreads very true. And we best not judge her. 6mo
UwannaPublishme 😂😂😂 It would have been a much better book about “our” Mr. (Barnabas) Collins! 🙌🏻 6mo
mabell The wonderful thing about Mr. Collins is he has no idea he is the cause of laughter 😄 6mo
