Journal Entry 5 by loribee at Birmingham, West Midlands United Kingdom on Saturday, January 12, 2019
Intrigued to find this seasonal novel in my very generous Secret Santa present! Also interested that the author was, with Trinny, presenter of tv programme 'What Not to Wear' which I'd enjoyed
Christmas 1969. Esme and Lexi are prepubescent girls who adore dogs and horses but find the behaviour of their parents confusing. The snowy Scottish setting, complete with draughty castle, provides opportunities for them to enjoy such varied fun as driving round the estate, snooping around the oblivious adults, and playing pranks on a royal visitor. Lovable faithful retainers keep the girls warm, fed, and mainly safe and a very grand grandmother heads a rare expedition to the cinema to see Hello Dolly. As might be expected, Susannah Constantine meticulously describes the fashions of the time and accompanying jewels.
Behind all the Enid Blyton fun are troubled adult lives which are hinted at but never fully made clear to the children. The reader also is left wondering about the history and motivation of the parents. By no means a children's book, events are seen through Esme's puzzled eyes. One hopes that not too much of this first novel is autobiographical.
