    1 thought on “The Fledgling”

    1. 4.5 Loved this book- Tory is a remarkable child and full of courage. Once I started this book, I didn't want to stop reading it.

    2. The republishing of Elizabeth Cadell's books on kindle is the reason I bought a kindle. Her novels can be extremely funny. They describe an England of two generations ago, and have a sweet naiveté pictured so vividly in "The Fledgling." Victoria needs an adult to supervise her train journey from Portugal to England (There's a ferry in there somewhere.) and all the caring adults in her life choose a middle aged man they slightly know from the local golfing club. Unsurprisingly, because Ms. Cadel [...]

    3. This is a very light read about a 10 year girl who travels to England from Portugal to start boarding school. The train trip effects the rest of the story. The story reminded me of Rumer Godden's books. I only gave this book 3 stars because I wasn't exactly blown away by it, maybe if I had read it when I was younger at 11 - 14 (when I read Rumer Godden's books), I would have enjoyed it more.

    4. Tori's father has decided it is time to send her away to boarding school. Tori, who is ten, has lived in Portugal all of her life. She lives with her three elderly great-aunts and her governess with occasional visits from her father. Her lovely young mother died when she was an infant in an auto accident in England. When her travel companions have to cancel their trip she is given into the care of a middle-age man who had introduced himself to the father and the aunts. He is to deliver her to a [...]

    5. Ten-yar-old, but very mature Vitorina finds herself carrying a stolen gold Saint Christopher statue while traveling to boarding school. She knows the thief but the adults in her life must trust her and discover who it is for themselves. As they do so, they renew old friendships that result in a new and exciting future family.

    6. This book is about this girl that meets a goose prince(sounds kinda weird)and this goose teaches her how to fly and a bunch of other stuff. I have not read it in a long time so i don't remember a lot about it but just read it because what i DO remember is that it was really good

    7. I simply adored this book as a child. It made the possibility of flight seem plausible - if only one could find a Goose Prince to teach you how! I would recommend it for anyone with children, or looking to re-awaken your child-like imagination!

    8. A Cadell page turner. Somewhat predictable but it didn't matter because I found the characters so appealing.

    9. Short and sweet is the best way to describe this book. I finished it during a day of air travel and it was the perfect filler for my busy book schedule.
