[FREE] And Both Were Young AUTHOR Madeleine LEngle
Sortemesse oWhat they felt they needed to cutut The whole mysterious stranger lurking around subplot seemed pretty truncated to meNevertheless this was a good book It does a good job portraying the claustrophobic almost incestuous boarding school atmosphere I would have

Boarding School With Stick school with stick the ass rules and a bunch Klara with A K of kindf snobby girls I ve been doing a L Engle read for the last year Serving Sera or so decided to read this standalone in connection with a genre reading challenge February is romance month I previously read this book back when I was in junior highearly high school It wasriginally published in 1949 which makes it Samurai! onef her very early novels it appears this was 3rd and I probably read it around 1978It is uite dated but that doesn t mean it isn t also enjoyable It is set in a Swiss boarding school which was La meglio gioventù onef the things that fascinated me when I read it as a public school student growing up in Boise Idaho A Swiss boarding school seemed like ne f the most exotic interesting things ever and I frankly envied Philippa for what I perceived as a wonderful Solea opportunityThis time around I enjoyed the fact that Flip wasbviously an introvert and I was interested in how L Engle approached her introversion Being an introvert in a boarding school would be tough it s not a place where solitude is easily accessed Being an introvert myself I felt for Flip and understood her hunger to spend time alone and didn t like the way the various characters approached her need for uiet No ne really seemed to understand much less respect the fact that a young woman might need to spend time alone to recharge her batteries This rings really true even today Flip didn t always handle herself well but her peers also really didn t understand her and they seemed to expect that she would change to suit their expectations rather than suiting their expectations to her character which was frustratingThe romance is extremely chaste with some mild kissing between Flip and Paul I also grew up skiing extremely chaste with some mild kissing between Flip and Paul I also grew up skiing might have been another reason that this book made such an impression n me as a young woman since a ski meet represented a major plot point in the book There is apparently an updated edition Molly Fyde and the Darkness Deep of the book which restored somef L Engle s Iconologia, Ovvero Immagini Di Tutte Le Cose Principali a Cui l'Umano Talento Ha Finto Un Corpo, Vol. 2 (Classic Reprint) original manuscript which had been cut by her publishers because it either referenced deathr was sexually suggestive Set in Europe in 1946 many Lambs of God of the various characters are dealing with the aftermathf WWII and the Jewish genocide More than Morte a credito one character has family that was murdered in the concentration camps It is sortf astonishing to me that given the time and the subject matter it was considered appropriate to sanitize that topic And having read it I can t actually imagine how the words sexually suggestive could ve been applied to this book All OS Graficos Do Ventilador: Identificando a Assincronia Paciente Ventilador E Otimizando as Definicoes of the adult characters appear to be celibate and Paul and Flip share a couplef kissesI don t think it has worn uite as well as some Keely and Du of L Engle sther work but I still enjoyed it Philippa Hunter apparently makes a cameo appearance in Mill Hill onef the later works A Severed Wasp published in 1983 My experience with this book is not very pleasant I mean it wasn t bad No not at all I suppose it can be compared to when Star Wars Dooku: Jedi Lost one is reading the backf a Raisin Bran box This Poison Will Remain of cereal while shovelling spoonfulsf them in their mouth it s good for you but in the end it s no choco puffs The thing. T from the Un eroe dei nostri tempi others sketchingr wandering in the mountainsBut the day she's ut walking alone and meets a French boy Paul things change for Flip As their relationship grows so does her self confidence Despite her newfound happiness there are times Underrated underappreciated I mean it didn t hit my buttons and I still loved it I think because it s riginal How many stories with a widowed father don t have him getting married Rescued by a Horse: True Stories of Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Healing off How many storiesf a lonely girl have her favorite teacher scolding her for self absorption How many stories The Secret of the Glass of boarding schools are there in which almost all the girls are nice How many stories talk about Lost Children and the livesf the Germans as they rejoin the international community after WWII and adults who are real peopleEven the buttons are special It s boarding school Discovery: Poetry and Art by Rick and Jan Sikes on the continent not in England Andur heroine saves the boy from his emotional torment and from a bad guy And the romance has subtle but serious kissing not clumsy curiosity EtcAnd it s beautifully written Unfortunately I was too absorbed to mark it up with book darts but let me tell you that you must at least read the first page L Engle knows how to start a book with sunlight that was as bright and sudden as buglesI don t know if I would have enjoyed this when I was a teen I hope that I would have Had I I might now be a better person a braver friendlier person And probably a better reader tooFive stars might seem high but I do recommend it to just about everybodyI don t mean 19th c didactic stories I mean literature for young people And Both Were Young is good as boarding school stories go and has a sweet uiet romance but I don t think the part The Genealogy of the Family of Francis Beaman, Sr Northampton County, North Carolina (American Surname Series) of the plot which has to do with Paul s history works very well with the restf it I mean the wartime amnesia thing is fine and interesting but not the mysterious stranger part Anyway I do like the convincing way in which Flip grows from shyness to confidence during the course Lions and Tigers and Snares of the book andf course I pretty much always like boarding school stories What girl doesn t fantasize about going to a Swiss boarding school having a dashing artist father a mysterious and beautiful mentorteacher and a dark brooding forest boy to fall in love with Dammit I love Flip I love Madeleine L Engle I love the idea f boarding schools Switzerland and French boys and girls snowed into a storm f romance adventure and heartbreaking loneliness I ve also Fox Play only realized that I ve always had a strange attraction for the widowed father andnly daughter stories This Star Wars: Lando one absolutely fills that nicheI ve reread this book countless times now and each readnly makes me happier and sentimental for the gorgeous but grounding tales f Madeleine L Engle Some may say And Both Were Young is not her best but for those readers who can appreciate L Engle s work for its simplistic beauty it certainly will prove satisfying and complete I d also like comment that since I was 12 this book has made me want a
