This book has everything from horses, to orphans to love interest a-plenty. I was going to say it's the perfect foil for the current vogue for dystopian fiction (Hunger Games, Maze Runner, Divergent, et al). However, it is set in the stifling confines of pre-war Edwardian Britain and maps the trials of an oppressed adolescent: Christina is an orphan who has been handed around the family until sent, at the beginning of this story, to the eponymous crumbling manor in Essex. Poor girl has to put up with the family's obsessive behaviour and try to find her place in this world without any say in what happens to her .
The book really stands up and is a lovely read whether you are child or adult. I'm surprised that more people don't know it. Maybe it's time to rerun the 79 telly series?
About the book.
Orphan Christina moves to Flambards when she is twelve. There she falls in love with horses and riding (especially hunting!) William (one of her two cousins) has a passion for aeroplanes and Mark (her other cousin) also has an interest in horses.Through this book you learn about the ups and downs, romances and tragedies Christina experienced. This book shall indeed MAKE you be hungry for the next three sequels.............heres their names in order.
