A Coronet for Cathie | Gwendoline Courtney
post image

My current read is this utterly charming tale of a young, sickly girl who discovers she‘s a duchess and heir to vast estates (after the untimely and oddly convenient death of several unknown family members).

Oh, and she gets a little white terrier called Blanche. Come on! What‘s NOT to like here? 😆

BiblioLitten @batsy 😂😂 This book reminded me of a book that I had read for children‘s classic challenge. Cannot remember the title at all though. About a boy who inherits and then warms up his gruff grandfather with his cuteness. 1w
batsy @LeahBergen Echoing @Aimeesue Kind Hearts and Coronets is so good! 1w
BiblioLitten @batsy Yessss!!! It was bugging me that I couldn‘t remember. Thank you!! (edited) 1w

LeahBergen @Aimeesue @batsy I‘m going to have to hunt that film down now. 👏 1w
LeahBergen @BiblioLitten @batsy Ah, Little Lord Fauntleroy! This book made me think of another Frances Hodgson Burnett several times while I was reading it: A Little Princess. One of my all time faves. 😆 1w

batsy @Aimeesue @LeahBergen Yes! That sums it up perfectly 😁 7d
Centique @batsy @LeahBergen @BiblioLitten just putting my hand up for the “A Little Princess” fan club. When I did chores as a kid I would pretend I was Sara and that my house was a boarding school and my mother was the mean headmistress 😂😂 5d
merelybookish That cover!! 😍 4d
BiblioLitten @Centique 😂😂😂 4d
rubyslippersreads @Centique @BiblioLitten @batsy @leahbergen Add me to the Little Princess fan club. (I also ❤️ the Shirley Temple version, even though it diverges wildly from the book.) 3d
rubyslippersreads I have this book. I‘ll have to move it up the TBR list. 3d
rubyslippersreads @Aimeesue My dad loved this movie, but somehow I‘ve never seen it. I‘ll have to remedy that. 3d
LeahBergen @Centique Your mother was mean Miss Minchin! 🤣🤣 2d
