Book Description

6 Sep 1999

Margaret Thursday, the heroine of Thursday’s Child, becomes a huge success on the London stage. But her old enemy is close on her heels, determined to carry out her revenge…

Margaret felt a glow of excitement as she read the advertisement:

Wanted: A clever girl to appear eleven. Appointment, write to Thomas Smith, The Dolphin Theatre.

In a trice it was all planned, and she was soon on the train to London, her heart pounding with excitement at the idea that she might, just might get the part in the new play. However, her subsequent successes bring with tthem the unwanted drama of a kidnap rumour. Day and night Margaret is closely protected, but it is soon clear that she hasn’t been guarded quite closely enough…

Product Description

Review

“The splended heroine dominates the action and the well-drawn group of eccentrics who surround her. Surely a winner with children.”
Junior Bookshelf

“Noel Streatfeild’s position in the children’s book world is unique. She is endlessly inventive, full of verve and real understanding of the surfaces of childhood. Her stories are rich in documentary interest and entertainment, escapism of a most satisfying sort.”
TLS

This book is the gripping sequel to Thursday's Child. It is not like an ordinary sequel, in which you think there was no point in writing it, for it is still as capturing, if not better than Thursday's Child itself. Margaret takes on the lead role at a well known theatre, and ends up becoming famous overnight. Unfortunately though,news ofthis reaches her bitter matron back at the orphanage of whom she ran away from, and Matron wants revenge. Despite taking care and trying her hardest to steer clear of Matron, her evil plans are already underway. But you can't just snatch a child actress with no-one noticing,can you?
Any Noel Streatfeild fan who's read and enjoyed Thursday's Child is sure to find Far to Go an excellent story. It's one of my favourite of her books.

Format:Hardcover
The story of a rising young star and her troubles with the past. A great book, yet not the best of Streatfeild. A good read for those who can get there hands on it.
