About this deal
l. I am going to be writing a book review about ‘the Secret of Nightingale Wood’ The author of this book is Lucy Strange. While reading the book, I discovered words like ‘luncheon’ which might be an old fashioned word. The book is set in the 20 th century. At the beginning of the book, Henry didn’t have the right to give an opinion. She was meant to be seen and not heard. With both woodlands have been thinned in recent years, thinning will continue, if appropriate at the time, on a five year cycle for conifers and 10 year cycle for broadleaves.
The ending was breath-taking and reduced me to tears of joy and bliss, the hardships of Henry paid off. The authors creation of characters that are extremely realistic, aids the reader to have more imagery- you can teleport to their world of ghosts, scars that you can’t see and deadly secrets. I thought it would be about a very happy sing-song book by looking at the cover. But boy was wrong… Hammill, Faye (2007). Women, Celebrity, and Literary Culture between the Wars. Austin, TX: University of Texas Press. ISBN 978-0-292-71644-5.This did make me feel about the difference to children to adults and I strongly believe that children should have the right to give an opinion in 1919 (the year this book has been set in) and in any time zone.
Nightingale Wood isn't the book Stella Gibbons is known for but I think it's her best. It's been described as a Cinderella story, but it's so much more. There are two main couples to focus on but it's also about people's individual needs and desires. While at school, Gibbons formed an ambition to be a writer, and on leaving in 1921 began a two-year Diploma in Journalism at University College, London (UCL).  The course had been established for ex-servicemen returning from the First World War,  but attracted several women, among them the future novelist Elizabeth Bowen. As well as English Literature, the curriculum covered economics, politics, history, science and languages; practical skills such as shorthand and typing were not included.
