THE BRONTES WENT TO WOOLWORTHS - Rachel Ferguson
First published in 1931 and republished in 2009 by The Bloomsbury Group, this utterly delightful novel presents us with a family of three young sisters and a mother who enliven their lives with shared fantasy to the bewilderment and disapproval of their conventional governess. When fantasy turns into reality, the Carne family spreads their joy to a childless judge and his wife. A merry romp, the book also suggests that there are many ways to being a "functional" rather than a "dysfunctional" family, and that a family that plays together is a good model for us all.
