Summary
The Mortmain family live in a somewhat shabby house that was built onto the remaining wall of Godsend Castle in England. Cassandra is the seventeen-year-old child of an author who published one highly acclaimed book, but has not been able to produce anything since. Through Cassandra's journal, we, too, `capture the castle` as we learn about her and the eccentric cast of characters by whom she is surrounded.
Critique
Dodie Smith has created a charming and compelling character in Cassandra. As she enters adulthood, you will experience the humor and sadness of her life and of those she loves.
