This is the journal of Cassandra Mortmain; an extraordinary account of life with her equally extraordinary family. First, there is her eccentric father. Then there is her sister, Rose - beautiful, vain and bored - and her stepmother, Topaz, and artist's model who likes to commune with nature. Finally, there is Stephen, dazzlingly handsome and hopelessly in love with Cassandra...

This was sort of like a 1930s (or 1940s) version of 'Bridget Joans' in a way. I thought it was much better written, though. Lovely book. Shame it languished on Mt. TBR for so long.

Picked up this morning at the farwell brunch of the fantastic Dunedin Convention.

Thanks to everyone involved in organising the convention, and to KiwiKat for donating the book (which is now back in Christchurch again! :-))

I agree with KiwiKat - this is a lovely book. Weird, but the story really draws you in, and the characters and setting are so lovingly described.

I picked this up at our booksale & scavenger hunt meetup, thanks for bringing it Futurecat and hello Kiwikat -writing to you is high on my list of things to do! I shall add this to my reading pile, hopefully it won't be too long before I get to it.

Really enjoyed this!! I loved how it was written!! Cassandra is such a wonderful diarist and is such a strong character that I had trouble putting this down.
I will take this along to the next Dunedin meetup and see if I can tempt someone else.
