    A Vicarage Family PDF/EPUB ☆ A Vicarage ePUB Ð vicarage kindle, family book, A Vicarage kindle, A Vicarage Family ePUBThis is the first of Streatfeild's three volumes of fictionalized autobiography in the forewords Streatfeild claims to have changed only names calling herself Victoria Strangeway but she apparently changed other things as well events and dates to make them fit in better with her narrative The first book covers Vicky's childhood as one of the vicarage girls along with her sisters and brother Streatfeild captures the point of view of a child nicely as well as a mature view into the thoughts of the adults around her and there are resemblances to her children's books VickyStreatfeild reminds me rather of Ginnie Bell of the Bell family books The second book covers her acting career and the third her writing career the narrative becomes a little disjointed in the third book but I liked the glimpses into her research for books eg tennis for Tennis Shoes and the circus for The Circus Is Coming and her experiences doi

    A Vicarage Family PDF/EPUB ☆ A Vicarage ePUB Ð vicarage kindle, family book, A Vicarage kindle, A Vicarage Family ePUBI recently found a copy of A Vicarage Family in a charity shop and had a 'no book left behind' moment over it It's a book I first read a long while ago and one that left me conscious of the necessity of giving your family a suet pudding to eat before the Sunday roast without ever being quite conscious of what a suet pudding was nor why you had to eat one before the meal Isn't it strange the shards that books leave within you? The Vicarage Family is suet for me alwaysBut on a practical and less food orientated note this book is about family It is a fictionalised autobiography of Streatfeild's childhood and one that wasn't as much fun to read for me this time as it was first time round It felt a little episodic a little disjointed and strangely underwhelming I'm not sure why it didn't work for me as much as it did though that point about the suet still made me smile I know what suet is now The excitementDespite all of this

When you've lived it seen it felt it you know it enough to convince your readers Being an actress I think she must have always had that spirit of watching observing as if to embody the different people herself this also happens to make her an excellent writerA great book for many reasons She's not proud She knows what a pain in the tutu she was and she doesn't shy away from showing it Fictionalizing her life gives her freedom to take the main focus off herself and give the other members of her family fair play also the interplay of relationships has intricacy There's too She knows h
