Susan Settles Down
By: Molly Clavering
Rating: 5 of 5
One of the latest books I’ve read in my binge of older books, is “Susan Settles Down” by Molly Clavering. It was written long ago and, as such, has a lot going on that would never happen today. For the most part, I find all of it charming.
The story is a slice of life and some of the funny parts don’t translate as well as I don’t know the reference points, but that is what searches on the internet are for.
A brother and sister (Oliver and Susan) go to Scotland to make a new home for themselves. The village people are quite different from what they are used to. The two are a bit smug and feel they are just a tad above their neighbors.
