Small Gains Epub í Paperback An enjoyably pastoral tale I enjoyed spending time with Clara and her horses, throughout her coming of age I also felt that the village and its inhabitants were thoughtfully rendered some beautiful prose in here. A great book very well written A good insight on what life was like at the end of the 19th Century England for farm families The book depicts really well the poor living condition and the huge discrepancy between rich and poor family It also shows well how women were treated and how young people were considered adults And finally a very good description of character developing through their lives.Clara is the narrator, she is the second daughter of Garlands, a widower who lost his wife to A great book very well written A good insight on what life was like at the end of the 19th Century

feels for him and other men I was left a little wanting to knowat the end of the book I was really wondering who the father of the child to be would be , but I guess that encourages me to get the second book of the series to see how the characters develop I did enjoy reading this book The story was excellent but the style of writing was a bit too simple for my taste It was in the 15 plus section in the library but really a ten year old wouldn t have any trouble reading this It was too simple The descriptions were great but lackeddiscriptive words, harder word It wouldn t be suitable

bad influence I really liked that Clara both hated and yet was attracted to him, and how confused this made her I confess I was thinking the storyline would be fairly tame, yet rather a lot goes on, especially towards the latter end of the book I found it very, very readable, and have already got my hands on the sequel I m also going to track down Flambards by the author too Upon re reading this, I still enjoyed it, but found the way the point of view changed a bit weird, especially as it wasn t even precluded by a chapter break as the novel wore on I also noticed the discrepancy in Nat s age in the first chapter he is 18, and Clara 11, but further in in the book, when Clara is 14, Nat is said to be 19 Tut tut A tragic saga set at the turn of the th century a poverty stricken family
