    eBook The Painted Garden PDF/EPUB Ö The Painted Kindle - Ü franzbielmeier.de Ü painted mobile, garden book, The Painted epub, The Painted Garden MOBIWonderful read and very unexpected too I'd forgotten just how great her other books are and I'm so glad I gave this a chance The writing is sweet and warm and the children's adventures are full of wonder The Christmas scenes in particular really moved me and the beginning of the book about the family's first steps in America is hilarious I enjoyed this very very much and I can't wait to read and reread of her work

    eBook The Painted Garden PDF/EPUB Ö The Painted Kindle - Ü franzbielmeier.de Ü painted mobile, garden book, The Painted epub, The Painted Garden MOBIThis felt like a slightly different Streatfeild book Of course it's also I think the first one I've read for the first time as an adult But mostly it's that it's about the untalented sibling And unlike characters like Petrova she is not happy being untalented Which I thought was very realistic She's written with sympathy but the narrative still make it clear the poor girl isn't that talented despite the movie roleAnyway it just felt a little less fun I guess But you get to see adult Fossils And I liked Rachel She has a uiet kind of journey I like Tim too but I guess he felt less distinct I guess Streatfeild's boys have never stuck out to me muchBut I am sad the book ended view spoilerbefore Jane and Chewing Gum's reunion hide spoiler

    eBook The Painted Garden PDF/EPUB Ö The Painted Kindle - Ü franzbielmeier.de Ü painted mobile, garden book, The Painted epub, The Painted Garden MOBIThe very worst Streatfield I have ever read None of the characters is remotely sympathetic and I didn't feel at all empathetic with any of the three self involved children Tim was obnoxious Rachel oblivious and Jane flat down unpleasant Their parents just kind of hang around waving their hands admiringly and saying Well honey if that's what you want to do go for it The Americans are cardboard did Streatfield ever visit America? with stupid made up sounding names like Sneltzworther and seriously Bee Bee Studios? Streatfield certainly wasn't trying very hard I found it very hard to believe that even in 1949 an American child actress in Hollywood would go around curtseying to guests at her own party Shaking hands yes being polite certainly but not curtseying But then Streatfield has a thing about curtseying in her dancing storiesPosy Fossil makes a reprise performance from an earlier book as I thought going to Czechoslovakia in 1938 didn't work out though we are never told ho
