It is a long time since I read Crusoe's Daughter, so I did not remember the details well. I really enjoyed this reading, although at first I was not sure of the narrator - she does a fair job of conveying Polly's changing age, but seems rather more comfortable in the middle years. This is not a book for those who want a galloping plot, with rapid action and cliff hanging moments - this is the evocation of a life rooted in a particular place, of a child gradually understanding the world around her, of an early love that colours the decades to come... The marsh, the Yellow House, the curiously distant and unknowable adults, the shining wonder of first love are all vividly conveyed. I will be downloading more Jane Gardam!
