Falconer's Lure | Antonia Forest

I‘ve just started the third of the Marlow books, a vintage children‘s series about the large Marlow family and their adventures during various school terms and holidays.

In this instalment, it‘s the summer holidays and Nicola discovers the art of falconry with a neighbour boy.

AlaMich “Art of falconry,” huh? Is that what the kids were calling it back in the day? 😉 4mo
LeahBergen @AlaMich 🤣🤣 I realized that might‘ve sounded a bit dirty when I wrote it but I let it stand. 4mo
LeahBergen @AlaMich And if you like that one, here‘s another vintage girl‘s horse story that I seriously can‘t ever look at without snickering 4mo

After my previous sad read (by a mother of one of the Columbine shooters), I‘m cheering myself up with this vintage children‘s novel about a very different sort of mother.

The four Verney sisters are quite determined to dislike the new wife their father is bringing home but Nan is equally determined to win them over. Well, she‘s already won me over with her lavish afternoon teas. #GreedyGuts

MARLOWS AND THE TRAITOR | Antonia Forest
post image

Well, after my previous (super sad) true crime read, I‘m moving on to a nice vintage children‘s novel. Whew!

The tagged book is the second in the Marlow family series which follows eight siblings on their adventures in boarding school and on holiday. I highly recommend the first in the series ( Autumn Term), too!
