NICE LITTLE SAMPLE!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas at High Rising: A Virago Modern Classic (VMC) (Paperback)
As a newcomer to Angela Thirkell, this little book is a good first read to get the flavour of High Rising and the characters therein. I have also read the first novel, High Rising, so far, and I very much like Mrs. Morland and her son Tony, who is quite an upfront schoolboy, especially when it comes to trains and his model railway, etc. There is a good cross-section of residents in the villages that make up the storylines. Reading an author from a past period is always interesting as it is also of historical interest, too.
