Read full description of the books Portrait of Margarita:Another one of those books for young people I want to give five stars to just because it is so rare to read books like this anymore. I do not remember coming across this delightful author as I was growing up but my friend, Hilary, wrote a review about one of her books which made me quite sure she was someone I would have loved then. Thank you Hilary!
This was one of the books still in print I could afford. Also Margarita is a pet name I use for my daughter, Meg. In the story, the main character, an English girl, doesn't like to be called by her full name, Margarita, preferring to go by Meg.
My own daughter is not into this genre at the moment, alas. However, I plan to set it aside for for when she (or her sister) has/have children of their own.
Highly recommended as a coming-of-age story for pre-teen girls especially. Would have less appeal for boys.
Read information about the authorWorking name of UK writer Ruth Mabel Arthur Huggins, long active as a children's author, her career beginning with Friendly Stories (collection, 1932). Most of her early work, like the Brownie sequence -- The Crooked Brownie (1936), The Crooked Brownie in Town (1942) and The Crooked Brownie at the Seaside (1942) is for younger children, but with Dragon Summer (1962) and A Candle in her Room (1966) she began to write the haunting fantasy-tinged adolescent novels for which she become best known. Often featuring first-person narratives spanning multiple generations filled with echoes of centuries past.
