Opportunity to read this one in exchange for an honest review Sigh fully completed the seriesnot ready to say goodbye 35 starsThe events of Bonfire Night take place towards the end of 1890 when young John Nicholas Jack the baby discovered in the stables at Bellmont Abbey in Twelfth Night is firmly ensconced in the Brisbane s nursery One evening at the end of October relaxing in their new London home with Portia and Plum the Brisbanes receive a visit from a shady character who professes himself a solicitor He informs Brisbane that he has inherited a country property by the name of Thorncross Hall He s never heard of it but the beuest appears The City Of Heavenly Tranquillity legitimate even though there are some odd conditions attached one of which is that he must be in residence at certain periods in order to secure the inheritance One of those periods is from All Hallow s Eve until Guy Fawkes Night which is just days awayIntrigued the four of them head to Berkshire where they are promptly greeted with stories of ghosts ghouls and things that go bump in the nightIt s pretty clear to team Brisbane and the reader that the servants and the villagers are up to something the uestion is what Our intrepid uartet uite happily sits upate at night simply to enjoy the efforts of the chain clankers banshee howlers and demon coachmen wondering why the villagers are going to such Penguins Poems for Life lengths to try to frighten them awayOr are theyThis is an engagingittle story with a nice twist but once again it really does reuire a familiarity with the characters and their past exploits for it to make sense so if you ve not read any of the other books in the series you l be at a bit of a oss I m going to go off at a bit of a tangent about a ittle nit going to go off at a bit of a tangent about a ittle nit something that bothered me view spoilerOne of the things that didn t sit uite right for me was Julia s attitude toward motherhood I know that throughout the books it s something she s been ambivalent about but at the end of Twelfth Night she and Brisbane made the decision to bring up his baby and Brisbane made the decision to bring up his baby brother as their own and it was a decision she clearly felt deeply about and that s great And while Julia is behaving in the same way as many upper class mothers who didn t really bring up their own children but handed them to an army of nurses governesses and tutors I felt that for Julia the baby is something to be taken out and played with and then put away when she d had enough I m sure that my being a mum who was fortunate enough to have been able to afford to stay at home with her kids when they were Divine Beauty little is colouring my view and I don t intend to provoke a major argument over different views of motherhood I m just saying that it s how it affected ME and that it s why I didn t find thingsike the opening conversation between Julia and Portia wherein Portia points out that Julia keeps misplacing the baby to be very funny A silly thing to be picking out of such a short book but it diminished Julia for me. Tor arrives with a strange beuest Nicholas it seems has inherited a country house but only if he and his family are in residence from All Hallows' Eve through Bonfire NightNeither Lady Julia nor Nicholas is Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone likely to be put off byocal Down to the Sea in Ships legends of ghosts and witches and the eerie noises and strangeights that flit from room to room. .
