A Girl of the North Reviews
Launa, attractive and musical, is raised in the Canadian wilderness by her wealthy father. To forget a suitor -- in whom she has found a severe flaw -- she travels to London with her father and begins to socialize with the upper-classes.Hard to rate; parts of the book are very well done, with clever dialogue and insightful comments. Characters screw up in believable ways. On the other hand, sometimes they don't, and the author seems to throw together situations to get her out of the corner into which she's written herself, e.g. the ending (view spoiler)[XXX was already married and has poor morals! Surprise! (hide spoiler)]. Would've done better with some foreshadowing and more attention to characters' consistency. A hesitant three stars. Available on Gutenberg.PS I thought I recognized the title, but may have confused it with something else. Or perhaps it shows up on a character's bookshelf in another novel? The author seems very obscure now, but that doesn't mean she wasn't popular (and Canadian) in her day.
