Download A Vicarage Family ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB The story there are three little girls Isobel the eldest is pretty gentle and artistic; Louise the youngest is sweet and talented and then there is Vicky 'the plain one' the awkward and rebellious child who doesn't fit in at school or at home Growing up in a big fami. A Vicarage Family is the somewhat fictionalized account of Noel Streatfeild s life growing up in a vicarage during the years leading up to WWIIn this novelization of her early years Noel becomes Victoria the rebellious daughter who found life growing up in a vicarage to be very restricting The middle of 3 sisters and one brother Victoria was often misunderstood or overlooked Her older sister Isobel was artistic meek and gentle Louise the younger sister was considered the beauty of the family and Vicky She was the odd one out plain with seemingly little talentFortunately as the story progressed Vicky started to find her footing and began to realize that she might not be so plain or talentless And as we know she went on to become a talented actress and popular author While her mischievous streak left her family frustrated and concerned I found Vicky to be a highly misunderstood caring fun and smart girlFor me Victoria s story was a little different but also similar to the experiences of others in the years leading up to WWI Like most young people of the era Vicky was really unaware of all that was brewing in the world around her specifically the events that would lead to war However I think living a sheltered life in a vicarage perhaps made Vicky and her family even naive than some of her contemporariesI really enjoyed this book and found all the characters to be very distinct and interesting in their own way I often found myself wondering what her family members thought of the story and her not always necessarily glowing descriptions of them Streatfeild addressed this dilemma herself How does the autobiographer handle a brother and sisters A father and mother How they looked how they appeared to me as persons yes But what they were like insideIt is because of my awareness that my portraits of the rest of my family are probably faulty that I have used no real names The thin shield of anonymity helped me feel unselfconscious in drawing them and in approaching the facts of my own lifeHer mother in particular I found to be rather beastly at times But Streatfeild made it clear that in later years the two become much closer than they were when she was a childIn the end I was left wanting to know about this family and in particular what becomes of the 3 sisters There are two autobiographical novels that Streatfeild wrote but unfortunately I am having a difficult time tracking down copies If I find them I will read them
