    "Great Outcomes for Foster Children"
    What did you love best about Tale of Hawthorn House?

    Although my age indicates that I'm undeniably an adult, I have never given up my belief in fairies. I believe Fairies exist because I still need them. Ms Albert provides believable eveidence of their existence and how they might interact with the human world. Ms Albert also gives poignent portryal of the role of children and how the adults who should care for and about them often fail to look out for their best insterests. Compare the treatment of Miss Potter by her own self-absorbed parents, the red-haired Irish orphan taken in by the vereinarian and his family (a British Anne of Green Gables?), and baby Flora. In this writer's mind these three individuals are unvalued children who comprise a major theme in the book. Ms. Albert skillfully resolves each character's plight at a different pace; Flora's by the end of the book, Miss Potter's and the orphan's by stages by the end of the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    What truly delights me about this series is how Ms Albert succeeds in including Miss Potters characters and making them as substantive as the human characters. Ms. Leischman's superb narration is crucial to this success.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I have two favorite scenes. The human scene is when a squirrel (or was it a dwelf?) wakes up Miss Potter from her nap in time to learn some crucial evidence. The animal scene is when Jemima Puddleduck's eggs hatch.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I like to listen to Audible as I'm working around the house. I love it when a book lasts from laundry time to dinner.
