    Story

    In the late summer of 1913, George Sawle brings his Cambridge schoolmate—a handsome, aristocratic young poet named Cecil Valance—to his family’s modest home outside London for the weekend. George is enthralled by Cecil, and soon his sixteen-year-old sister, Daphne, is equally besotted by him and the stories he tells about Corley Court, the country estate he is heir to.

    What would have made The Stranger's Child better?

    A meandering story that was very difficult to follow.


    Would you be willing to try another one of James Daniel Wilson’s performances?

    The fact that no one in my book club enjoyed this book had everything to do with the author and nothing to do with the performance of the narrator, So yes.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    A few people in my book club thought The author had a gift of painting visual images of characters and scenery.


    Any additional comments?

    Out of six people in our book club only one person finished this entire book. This has never happened before. The other five people, including me, found the books so on unengaging and difficult to follow that we gave up and quit reading. One of the worst books I've ever read.
