Journal Entry 1 by authorauthor from Alexandria, Virginia USA on Saturday, January 18, 2020
As children, Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy were students at Hailsham, an exclusive boarding school in the English countryside. It was a place of mercurial cliques and mysterious rules -- and teachers were constantly reminding them of how special they were. Years later, Kathy is a young woman and Ruth and Tommy have re-entered her life. And for the first time she is beginning to look back at their shared past and understand just what it is that makes them so special -- and how that will shape the rest of their time together.

I selected this trade paperback because I thought it would make a good offering in my own Little Free Library/

I read another copy of this book in 2011. This is what I wrote about it after I read it....

I was warned prior to reading this book that there would be a spoiler at the beginning of the book which might intefere with my enjoyment of the story. I did not find that to be the case at all. I found the story to be engaging in a way that made me want to read further without a lapse at any point in the story.

This is the story of three young people (Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy) at a private school in England and how their relationship to each other developed over the course of their lives. No, I will not give you the spoiler here in my review. What I did think, though, is that the “hook” that makes this an unusual story should not have been foreshadowed in the beginning (as it was only too obvious what it meant), but it should have been revealed much later in the novel. That aside, I also could not understand why Kathy and Ruth were friends at all. Theirs was such a contentious relationship!

The novel itself is interesting in a thought-provoking way. I’m sorry that the novel mostly centered on the characters' relationships and did not delve further into their more specific roles later in life. I liked this novel, though. Even the long-winded explanations given by the narrator, Kathy, of what life was like for her during her school years

I'm releasing this book for...

I took this book from the great selection of books in fellow BC'er SqueakyChu's LFL of Twinbrook #7720. This book is by the author of "The Remains of the Day" which I read earlier this year and also watched the movie based on that book staring Anthony Hopkins.
