Book Description

7 Aug 2006
Excerpt: ...back, that I grew a little home-sick and looked wistfully into grandmamma's face as she read the letter. This would always make her say: "You don't want to go home, little one? Pg 78 Aren't you very happy here with Lottie and the boys? And you are getting on so nicely with your books, too; mamma is so pleased to have you with so many little schoolfellows, and kind Miss Grant to teach you! And we are going to have all kinds of pleasant treats in the holidays. No, no, we must keep you another month or two! Perhaps we will send you home when the cold weather comes!" So I ran away again to make plans with Lottie about all the many things that must be done the very first day of no lessons. Then came the last time of Pg 79 history, and the last dreadful sums, and the last copy written, and the last hard French words learnt, and then, happiest of all, the last putting away of books and cleaning of slates! It almost makes me take that long breath for joy even now only to remember that happy day. "And don't you think I'm the happiest of us all?" said Miss Grant; "I am the only one really going home for the holidays!" Which remark was a great relief to my little mind, for I had been afraid we must seem a great deal too glad that she was going. Pg 80 Now I could venture on my very loudest "hurrah," which, after all, was but a feeble imitation of the boys' loud cheers. You know, anticipation is the best part of every pleasure; in easier words, everything looks brighter before it comes than when it is come. I think that was very nearly the happiest day of my whole year at Beecham, when I sat on the floor watching the last things put into Miss Grant's box, and chattering away about the happy days coming. You see, for a long time I had got up every morning with the thought of how many Pg 81 good marks I should get, and of how those hard letters and figures were to be made, and though I had made many a brave fight and won many a delightful victory over the books,...

1.0 out of 5 stars Baffling 5 Dec 2012
By Heather - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I am an avid reader and find that I cannot afford to buy enough books to keep me entertained...and so I turn to free books to make up for it. However, I feel a bit cheated-even knowing this was free. I tried to read this story. I really did. There was no rhythm to it. I just couldn't make sense of it.

Adding this book to my Kindle, as reading about the English house hold and done as first person, is insightful reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars bad 11 Dec 2012

A half star would be better, or none. Did not care for it or any of these and hate being forced to review for bad pros.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's free and it's still over-priced 5 Dec 2011
By Actmeister - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This review has to be twenty words, which is far more time than this silly thing deserves. It has no point no plot no beginning no middle and no end. The only good thing is, it's shorter than a Harry Potter goblin.

1.0 out of 5 stars Remember, It's Old 29 Dec 2012
By cheepo retiree - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was published in 1872, and the publisher either was hard-up for material or was paid (vanity pub) to put this out. Or, even worse, there were so few books on the market that you could publish anything and make a profit.
All that aside, I found it interesting as it probably shows a "privileged" persons view of their childhood. Scary, huh?
A further note, it was published in London, England, which may also have an influence on it's publication.
