On the whole I really loved the writing and enjoyed the story The lack of five stars is because I felt that the romance portion of this story was so built up during the first portion of the book and then just cast into the shadows I didn t like that but perhaps that was Fisher s way of being real and raw and true to life I was strengthened by the fight to save the school from the dirty money I loved all the speeches about freedom and values and morals Timothy Hulme is a character worthy of admiration for his ideals and his expression of those ideals This book was published in 1939 right in the middle of Hitler s evil reign and Fisher put the perfect words into her characters Mr Dewey and Timothy Hulme as well as many others Aunt Lavinia was a lovely character and Timothy s love for her was a very beautiful part of this book
