This was an intriguing story but you have to be in the right frame of mind to enjoy it. While others find it tedious because of my negative family I related to the child Fancy. Part two starts on a spiral downwards leaving the feeling it was rushed and the tense used changed to "we was" which i had to keep changing as I read. It was a lovely story to the end omce the spiral ended. The hindsight was a nice surprise. It is worth the try to read.

Interesting book. Not sure why author switches around the language/grammar of the main protaganist. As an example, sometimes it's 'they was' and other times 'they were'. This story really bogs down in the middle. We now have the idea that there are mysterious things going on, maybe. But it is time to move things along instead of having a lot of repetition with very little new information. It is not really building up the suspense as much as just making me feel like skipping parts.
