Reviews (Rated: 5 Stars - 1 review)

Reviewer: - August 16, 2014
Subject: Old School
Literally! This book is based on the author's mother's experiences and reads like a series of memories rather than a gripping tale of imagination, but it's a pleasant account of a colonial girl's education in an English boarding school and if you like old-fashioned books worth listening to. The reader does a fine job of reading in a clear, English-accented voice. It's a straight read with no attempt at characterization.
