|I Capture The Castle by Dodie Smith|
I Capture The Castle is the journal of Cassandra Mortmain, who lives in the crumbling castle and writes about her family and life in 1930s England. On the brink of poverty, Cassandra and her family make the most of everything and refuse to give up. She and her sister Rose dream of what life would be like if they married handsome, wealthy men.
Could their dreams be realised when the Cotton brothers move in next door after inheriting the Hall next door?
I loved the way that Cassandra's writing "captured" every aspect of her life and the people around her. I found myself longing for the object of her affections to return her feelings.
I absolutely loved this, but don't want to say too much, as I'd urge you to read it.
