The Peachgrowers Almanac

The Peachgrowers Almanac Free download Ç 5 An unlikely ally in Mr Blake the photographer hired to document the Collection While Mr Talbot is absorbed in the eccentric but seemingly benign Society for the Propagation of Useful and Interesting Knowledge Alice plots her escape from both her oppressive father and Dr Cattermole’s unspeakable plans for her future Intrigue is rife in India as well where Lilian continues to defy convention Playing her many admirers off one another she uietly works toward the goal of reuniting with her sister But the violent onset of the Indian rebellion against British rule threatens to derail her plans And back at the Talbot estate the Society’s experiments are taking a menacing turn Will the sisters' resourcefulness and profound devotion to each other be enough to save them Capturing the Victorian era in all of its whimsy and horror A Proper Education for Girls is a superb debut novel about the power of sisterhoo. I started off really liking this book It had all kinds of elements I like to see in a story lush setting full of interesting historical elements intelligent and strong female characters a host of colorful secondary characters and an easily readable narrative voice from another era I was all set for the perfect book Unfortunately as the chapters wore on this book made a uick transition from charming to utterly bizarre Suffice it to say Dirollo holds nothing back in her graphic detail of the distasteful aspects of this bygone era While I give her credit for shining a light on the dark side of life as a female during this time I can t help but think it was over the top This story just seemed to go on and on each page holding a repulsive surprise than the last Overall just an odd book and not one I d read again

The Peachgrowers Almanac Free download Ç 5 Not since the Brontës have we seen the likes of the Talbot sisters plucky peach growers with a peculiar upbringing and a flair for subversion Set in England and India in the mutinous year of 1857 A Proper Education for Girls tells the story of Alice and Lilian Talbot twins separated for the first time in their lives by their martinet father After an affair comes to a tragic end Lilian is banished from the Talbot mansion and married off to a sickly missionary in India Unwilling to play the part of the demure missionary wife beautiful tomboyish Lilian uickly takes advantage of her husband’s hypochondria and her newfound freedom as a British expatriate tramping off into the jungle to paint pictures of the indigenous flora and secretly learning the language and customs of her adopted homeland Meanwhile the plain but sharp witted Alice remains on her father’s isolated estate serving as curator to his st. I expected on the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857 in India but I was pleasantly surprised in any case This was a delightful comedyfarcesatire on women in the Victorian period I found myself chuckling from time to time at the author s witThe two Talbot sisters Lilian and Alice are two round pegs in suare holes not the stereotypes of Victorian womanhood at all think Bronte sisters or any woman travellers of that period say Gertrude Bell They live with their father an eccentric and inveterate Collector his collection will bring a smile to your face several dear aunts and odd gentlemen with bizarre interests who live with the family helping Mr Talbot After an indiscretion Lilian is married off and packed off to India The strong Alice remains as curator of her father s collection of curios and objets d art from all over the world She is also an amateur photographer and caretaker of the family hothouse in which she wheels a peach tree from the hotter area to the cooler area and back again as needed She receives a mysterious letter from her sister ostensibly about tiger skin cushions A photographer Mr Blake one of her father s guests helps her decipher the letter The evil or is he just misguided in his pursuit of scientific knowledge Dr Cattermole a friend of her father s has ideas about Alice s future and plans to act on them In India Lilian married to a dour humorless missionary begins to assert herself She disappears from time to time to paint Indian flora and makes some money at it Her husband the hypochrondriac Selwyn Fraser is appalled at her behavior The other English are types but funny all the same Lilian s husband dies as a widow her forceful personality is revealed and She dresses native adopting native habits The other English want her to remarry Lilian notes in one place in the novel as a girl or wife a woman is under her father s or husband s thumb as a widow people respect her opinions In trying to escape her oppressive life she is embroiled in the Sepoy Mutiny Mr Blake along with part of the Collection helps Alice escape her planned fate Do the two girls finally reuniteWitty writing and an unusual story were pleasurable The descriptions of the Collection were very clever the scene of the eruption of the artificial volcano made me smile The novel reminded me in parts of the play and movie You can t take it with you by Moss Hart although with different settingRecommended

review The Peachgrowers Almanac

The Peachgrowers Almanac Free download Ç 5 Range and vast Collection under the watchful eye of the malevolent Dr Cattermole The Collection which has taken over every inch of the rambling estate is the essence of Victorian England antiuated and ingen ious austere and excessive Twelve perfectly synchronized grandfather clocks stand at attention at the bottom of a staircase Botanical specimens have overrun the conservatory turning the room into a tropical greenhouse Forgotten houseguests roam amid fossilized sea creatures display cases of Greek pottery and mechanical contraptions A peach tree inherited from their mother and planted in a wheelbarrow for portability is a constant reminder of Lilian’s absence Though Mr Talbot has cut off all communication between the sisters a cryptic letter from Lilian manages to slip through and hidden in the envelope is a puzzling photograph of a tiger hunt Alice sets about cracking the code in the letter finding. I just loved this novel it s an amazing adventure with two cool 19th century female protagonists In the end I couldn t turn it down I read it in two days and loved every page of it I hope Elaine di Rollo writes a new novel soon she has created in this novel a higly original universum it s like a Bront novel but with a very dark twist and black humor Loved it loved it loved it
