Cassandra Mortmain is a teenage girl growing up in a dilapidated English castle with her younger brother; beautiful older sister, Rose; her free-spirited stepmother, Topaz; and her eccentric father. When two American young men move into the estate nearby, life at the castle will never be the same. The story is told in a series of Cassandra’s journal entries. The book was originally published in the 1940’s, and so has certain old-fashioned charm; yet it survives in this modern world due its timeless truths.
