    •  I just looked back at the first book (2+ / 0-)

      And realized my memory was not so exact as I had thought. Although her family was in financial difficulty and her father is near death at one point, the bad fortunes are reversed by the end of the book. Apparently, the book's similarity to other, better, books like the two previously mentioned and The Little Princess was enough to warp my memory of the events contained within.

      But on looking back at the first novel, I confirmed that every part of it was just as fascinatingly bad as I remembered. It reads like poisoned candy.

      My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.
