5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting and delightful, 12 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Meeting the English (Kindle Edition)
Struan Robertson, our hero, is eyebrow-raisingly well-read and sage for an orphaned seventeen-year old lad brought up in the Scottish sticks. Meeting the English chronicles his first visit to London to look after an incapacitated famous playwright - but nothing really happens that can't be anticipated and there are no completely unforeseeable twists, layers or zigzags (and the ending is a bit "hey-ho"). So why five stars? Entirely for the wholly delightful and engaging character the author creates in Struan. Kate Clanchy draws the reader onto Struan's side on the first page and keeps us there; we are rooting for him, willing him to triumph over adversity. Meeting the English is a lovely read - highly recommended.
