The Secret Garden

review The Secret Garden 103 And his two sons in their decaying mansion Flambards Christina discovers a passion for horses and. I ve asked the Librarians Group to change the date Flambards is listed as having been first published in 1911 Even though it is partly set in 1912 and the author was born in 1929 Published in 1967 according to this interview with the author never read this book as a child and I never hunted though I knew a lot about hunting thanks to the Pullein Thompson sisters I always had the impression this book was too much about the English upper class for me And probably I would not have accepted the read the way I did My Friend Flicka because the ineualities and brutalities are too strong A young orphaned girl arrives on the scene from dainty rooms in London in 1910 and learns about horse pursuits fast The Essex manor house Flambards in this eponymous story and that s the correct way to use eponymous is becoming a neglected pile since all the family money is being spent on maintaining a stable of horses for fox hunting The father uncle Russell is a control freak devoid of affection He was seriously injured and lost the use of his legs and now lives vicariously while asserting his control over his sons Between the older lad taking boorishly and drunkenly after his father a testament to the old droit de seigneur and the withdrawn younger son plotting to escape and develop flying machines a look to the future of science and warfare the characters stand at a crossroads When our heroine comes of age at 21 she will inherit money and other relatives expect she will marry her elder cousin who will put her money to use propping up the stable Women at that time had few choices and we are shown that the servant class had fewer choices The horses are individual personalities from the steady strawberry roan to the topping chestnut flyer They get far care and attention than the grooms But a telling incident is when a good mare is badly ridden at a ditch and seriously injured to save treatment and escape a reminder of his ill judgement the rider condemns her In 1914 horses will be bought up wholesale for the cavalry such as the older brother while the fledgling Royal Air Corps will be hoovering up mechanics and aviation minded young men Ominous mentions of war darken the 1912 later part of the story I can t help feeling that the characters are based upon people the author knew with invented settings Writing in 1967 she went back in time so she would not be accused of portraying those around her According to the author her first boyfriend was shot down over Germany What I do find unbelievable is that a young lady is left by her social circle to grow up without a woman or girl to guide her I would have expected that her female relatives would invite her to stay during summer or send a girl to be a friend to her Perhaps her uncle wanted everyone to forget about her but she s out in society attending hunt balls She s also uite ignorant of how a servant girl is abused I d definitely have liked her to develop a bit backbone Riding should have taught her that at least I ll look out for the rest of the booksI read this book from the Raheny Library This is a unbiased review

summary The Secret Garden

review The Secret Garden 103 A totally absorbing novel about twelve year old Christina who is sent to live with her fierce uncle. Another of my re reads Once again I still like it very much but I had not remembered that the chapters were sometimes years apart This is historical fiction that takes place just before the beginning of World War I in idyllic semi rural Great Britain where the gulfs between the classes are large and no one seems to see anything wrong with the system Christina who is twelve when we first meet her is an heiress who will have no money of her own until she is twenty one She has been sent to live with her uncle Russell who was a major fox hunter until he was injured in a fall Now he drinks pretty heavily It is generally accepted by everyone except Christina herself that she will ultimately marry Russell s oldest son Mark who is very like him and thus use her money to finance the upkeep of the Flambards estate Russell s younger son Will hates fox hunting and is mad for machinery cars and the fledgling aeroplanes Since it s Flambards it goes without saying that Christina must learn to ride and to fox hunt Her teacher is the stable boy Dick who is a better rider than Mark and much gentle with horses and people and also totally dependent on the Russells for his livelihood Fortunately for Chirstina she learns to love ridingThe people are fully rounded the social s acurately depicted and the resolution very satisfying And it s even better when you realize that there are three books in the series taking you through a great deal of the history and social changes of the times This one is well worth reading and re reading

review The Secret Garden 103 Riding but finds herself part of a strange household divided by emotional undercurrents and cruelty. I hadn t heard of this book ever but then I haven t heard of so many books in classic children s literature Flambards is oriented towards YA I think rather than children But this was so utterly delightful Set in England at a time of a looming war I was drawn into its world of horse drawn carriages crumbling estates and well horses There are a lot of horses in this novel many of them form almost the fourth or the fifth characters but you will love them all At heart this is still a tale of young emotions Ah To be 16 and in love Those were the days
