Such a moving story,
This review is from: Isobel's Story (Swallowcliffe Hall Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
This is a great read. It's the last instalment in the 'Swalliowcliffe Hall' trilogy, and resolves secrets and mysteries from the first two books in a wonderfully satisfying way. Polly Perkins' granddaughter, Isobel, arrives at Swallowcliffe Hall in 1939 to convalesce after an illness and help her granny, who's become housekeeper there. The house has fallen on hard times, and I loved reading about how it has changed, and picking up on references from the first two stories. Isobel meets Andreas, a Jewish boy who has escaped from journey by means of the Kindertransport, and tries to help his family in the face of prejudice and mistrust on the village. The relationship between this sensitive girl and her grandmother is delightfully written and I was in tears by the end! So interesting to read about the period just before the Second World War was declared.
