Rating A solid happiness inducing 35 of fiveThe Publisher Says In the midst of World War Two the Beltons of Harefield Park find themselves living on overdrafts to an extent that even they found alarming It seems they may have to sell the family estate for which during wartime there is little demandTheir prayers are answered however in the unlikely form of Miss Sparling the dauntless headmistress of the recently evacuated Hoisers' Girls' Foundation School who just happens to be looking for a country mansion to let THE HEADMISTRESS first published in 1945 and long unavailable is typical Thirkell charming witty and refreshingly urbaneMy Review Anthony Trollope originated Barsetshire the fictional uber English county in a series of novels that include The Warden and Barchester Towers two of my favorites in that series He created a constellation of memorable characters whose essential reality came from the shudder Dickensian ink pot of broad strokes and deft shadows The series is still read today by significant numbers of fans It's only 160 years laterpretty good going for a hack writerAngela Thirkell began writing books set in this Barsetshire alternate reality when she was but a lass of nineteen She continued to mine the mother lode until her death at seventy one ish Her characters from families either alluded to in the original or simply made up are as true and real as Trollope's own Her observations are clear and pointed her language is limpidly simple and direct and all in all her books are a great pleasure to readif you like this sort of thingI doThis entry into her series presents a wartime Barsetshire that like all of England is undergoing a massive reorientation of its social compass It's like the pole shift that the Earth throws itself every so oftennorth isn't north any it's east then west then south by southwest and nowhere is there a fixed point to steer by Thirkell's eponymous headmistress Miss Sparling sees the confusion around her and steers by her own strong internal compass It makes her a delightful character to follow and within the novel itself makes her a welcome addition to the closed world of county society in HarefieldWhy should modern readers sixty five years on read a book like this by a nearly forgotten second rank commercial writer of a bygone style? Because dear readers this era like that one is a time of great social change and we can all take comfort in the efforts our forebears made to resist accommodate and understand often all three at once the titanic reorientations going on around us I suspect that the reason change makes humans so miserable is that we refuse to acknowledge the storehouse of help our ancestors piled up for us in the form of myths stories and legends All storytelling involves change resistance to it and conseuencesSo I recommend to those disoriented by the gradualsudden shifting of the culture that they read this and the other Barsetshire novels and view them as self help books in aid of managing their own responses to a changing worldBesides they're delightful to read This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike 30 Unported License I love Angela Thirkell's Barsetshire novels and am reading them in order as much as possible; each book is a delight like visiting old friends This book opens several years into the rationing blackouts and hardships of World War II; the residents of Barsetshire are coping with stiff upper lips and dry humor still enjoying the small pleasures of gossip at the occasional dinner or tea party with neighbors and anticipating visits home from children on leaveThe Beltons of Harefield Park fear they'll have to sell the family estate but are saved from that desperate measure by the evacuated Hosiers' Girls' Foundation School which leases their mansion for the school Some of my favorite new characters to add to the ever increasing cast of Barsetshire residents include Miss Sparling the headmistress of the school and title her assistant Miss Holly Mr Oriel the vicar and Oxford don Mr Carton As with all of the books in the series members of the same county families servants tradespeople and clergy walk on and off and devoted fans get to revisit with these old friends make new ones and eavesdrop on the gossip and news I love it Even though these books were written in the 1930s and '40s I find them timeless because of Thirkell's affectionate and devastatingly honest insights into human nature as in this passage describing Mr and Mrs Belton's reaction when their son comes home on leaveThis pleasant warm content was suddenly broken by a shattering noise outside the house and a violent ringing of the telephoneThey now heardthe well known voice of their younger son Charles His parents though they would rather have died than admit it to any outsider to each other or even to their secret selves experienced a peculiar sinking of the heart or rather the spirits at this sound Not but that either of them would cheerfully have gone to the scaffold for Charles or given him the best bed all the butter ration and the most comfortable chair; but they knew from fatal experience that whatever they did would be just wrongAnd it was much the same with Freddy and Elsa though Freddy at twenty nine was approximating to something human in his parents' house Mrs Belton wondered if all the other parents felt the sameBrilliant and so true who amongst us hasn't felt that sinking feeling as a beloved but irritatingly angsty sulking teenager slouched into the room? I find such insightful humorous but true gems buried throughout Thirkell's deceptively mundane descriptions and observations of daily lives and routines among Barsetshire's residents Delightful and a treat I savor every time I read and no doubt eventually reread one of her sweet charming and funny books It was like nostalgic continuation of Growing Up It wasn't so good in the mood as was Growing up but I felt this remarkable atmosphere on many pages Here I was watching as Heather and the young Beltons were growig up Each one in hisher own precious way Moreover I have watched also as the world around were changing The world was not only moving on but also changing because of the war and rapid social and economical changes The novels by Thirkell through witty fiction show us many important and worth remembering things about humansI loved Mrs Belton as a mother to tell you the truth I like most of Thirkell's mothers They are so probably not politically correct today I mean they love their children but often also they don't like them or they like when they are safe but somewhere else ; The story of miss Sparling and her school was interesting but not so much to grip my full attention and hearthI really adored how relationship between Elsa and Captain Hornby developedI demand of Mrs Updike and her family I hope there is a book about themAnd of course Heather Adams I just have to read what happened to her a few years later So I am a little depressed because there are only few Thirkell's novel on Open Library now I really really hope they will be of them in the futureHere is an example of Mrs Thirkell's wit from this book Do you really never remember a mother? said Elsa leaning against the pantry table while Captain Hornby washed his handsReally not said Captain Hornby She died when I was about a year old But I dare say it was just as well She mightn't have liked me; or I mightn't have liked her Heaps of fellows don't seem to get on with their people And it was nearly forty years agoMoreover again we had here satire of prejudice and hostility between Slavo Lydian and Mixo Lydian really priceless Mrs Belton is worried And she has a lot to worry about With three children serving in England’s wartime forces plus a move from their country estate to the village due to financial strictures Mrs Belton has a lot of adjusting to do “But gentleman farming is no inheritance and by the time the war settled down upon the world the Beltons were living on overdrafts to an extent that even they found alarming and two years later were unhappily making up their minds to sell a house and estate for which there would probably be no demand when Providence kindly intervened in the shape of the Hosiers’ Girls’ Foundation School” “The Headmistress” centers upon life in the small village of Harefield At times lighthearted don’t let the author’s well earned reputation for blithe carefree prose deceive you Taking us through the wartime years and giving us snippets of life in a small countryside village we experience along with the Beltons the changes brought about not only through food and clothing coupons and rationing but within social s and status Mrs Belton to all intents and purposes seemingly unflustered and stable inwardly uakes at the fears and anxieties the war brings not only for her children serving in the military but for her husband who must weather the straits his finances have brought him to and adjust to village life leaving his estate to be rented out by a girls school “All three children ought to have married years ago but they never seemed to want to Nor did they want a jolly elder sister All they wanted was a purveyor of beds fires food such drink as there was cigarettes; someone who could take all telephone messages accurately never ask where they were going or had been tireless self effacing All of which she had tried to be and she knew that her husband had too but at the end of each leave whether it was Freddy from his ship Elsa from her hush hush job or Charles from the army she felt she had not given satisfactionWhat she would really like she thought would be to throw every single thing in her wardrobe out of the window and have everything new and to stop feeling tired and looking her age and go somewhere warm if there was any warm place left in this horrible world now” There are the ever present cast of uirky characters Mrs Updike who though lovable is constantly accident prone stabbing or burning herself while doing the most simple of household tasks Mr Carton who despises his christened name Sydney after the Dickens’ character Like Anne of Green Gables he distinguishes the spelling of his name and who manages to keep it private from most of his acuaintances but unexpectedly finds himself revealing it to Miss Sparling The headmistress Miss Sparling herself who always seems to know the right things to say or do And Elsa the spoiled daughter of the Beltons who cannot seem to see that her attempts to interfere in her father’s finances are unwelcome Then there is poor Heather Adams the regrettably plain and undistinguished student who develops a schoolgirl crush daydreaming constantly when rescued from her wallflower status at a dance Heather surprises everyone when she demonstrates her skating prowess and brings notoriety and attention upon herself when she experiences a mishap And as always there is romance and the reader must discover whether Miss Sparling will find happiness with the vicar Mr Oriel or with Mr Carton I have read and enjoyed several of Thirkells’ novels now and enjoyed this one although it was not one of my favorites I look forward to reading many In the midst of World War II the Beltons have fallen on hard times With the three children grown and doing important war work and money tight the Beltons have let their estate to the Hosiers Girls School Unlike the Boys' School this school caters to daughters of the upper middle class industrialists and the like Miss Sparling the headmistress presides over her school with good grace humor and kindness but also with a firm hand The Beltons are renting a cottage on their estate belonging to the heir of the late Mrs Admiral Ellangowan Hornby Captain Hornby I liked this story the least of the series so far It starts off with way too much talk about the right sort A little bit is fine but the Beltons come across as very very snobby Mrs Belton is related to half the families in the county The family is not very pleasant Mrs Belton is a little bit vague but mostly kind so I didn't mind her too much I liked Mr Belton well enough he sticks to farming and accepts what is Two of the three children are horrid I hated the youngest Charles He was cruel and rude at times Elsa is the worst snob of all She is spoiled and selfish I found it hard to relate to her The eldest son was a bit too kind and charming to awkward school girls but not as horrid as his brother and sister Miss Sparling is a nice enough character I liked how she dealt with the school girls and the running of the school but the rest of her plot was SO boring Her romance is basically a non romance It's a meeting of the minds over a common subject Her two potential suitors are old men a clergyman and a misogynistic academic I found them both so dreadfully dull I skimmed a lot of their scenes As usual the secondary characters are a delight We catch up on the gossip of Barsetshire and learn what is happening with all our old friends mostly Lord and Lady Pomfret and their children There are a ton of new characters here and it's hard to keep track of them all I loved Mrs Updike the solicitor's accident prone wife She's so cheerful and charming in spite of her clumsiness I also loved Dorothy the all but slow witted maid in the vicar's house She was too funny with her nice book At the school we have Heather Adams daughter of a wealthy industrialist While she isn't easy to like I felt a kinship with her There's also Isabella Ferdinand the ueen Bee of the school who isn't really mean just less intelligent than Heather and less focused on academics Finally we have Captain Hornby He's a very nice man and good to the Beltons I liked him a lot but didn't like where his plot went Most of the romance happened off page and when it was on page it wasn't pleasant There are outdated attitudes that REALLY bothered me about this book namely the attitudes towards women Women are ridiculed for being smart professionals or they're made to feel guilty for having a career instead of being married The female doctor is a constant source of dislike in the village because of the way she dresses and her modern methods psychoanalysis Assuming she can't earn a PhD and become a psychologist at this time her bedside manner needs work but other than that I didn't see anything wrong with her Miss Sparling is constantly asked when she is going to retire read get married and women who are competent professionals are dismissed by everyone There's lots of talk about women's nerves and the strain of work on their nerves There's also mention of beating a woman because she was very rude This book just wasn't my cup of tea but I really want to know what happens to everyone when the war is over so I will read on The best of hers so far that I've readThis book is charming witty with her world of cultivated gentry with terrific comedy of mannersI loved itMy second hand copy came from America as it's out of print which is such a shameIt has the most stunning coverMariana by Sir John Everett Millais This is my sixth Thirkell and it is one of the bestWhile it is interesting watching a TV drama set in the war it is not as good as reading a book written during the war We all know that people just ''got on with it'' but reading how they did is amazing And I learned things as well something called ''utility suit'' which according to Thirkill was not fit for purpose Nor did I know about vitamins being added to flour which made it taste bad And I thought saccharin was a modern thing who knew The way Commander Belton and Captain Hornby just said so matter of factly that they were expecting promotion ''if they did not get killed'' amazingBut leaving all that aside the story was excellent A wonderful collection of characters accident prone Mrs Updike the episode with the chicken was priceless spoiled Elsa plain Heather Adams romantic Dorothy I could go on It is funny and heart warmingI recommend this book It has long been obvious to the meanest of our readers we allude to the one who asked the young lady at the library for a nice book and now wished she had got something diffrent something really nice if you know what I mean that an author does not invent a lake with a spring under it and bring a band of hooligans out from Barchester at great waste of the country's petrol to try to crack the ice without intending to make someone fall in This moment as has been all too patent for some time nor have we attempted to mislead the reader or to conceal it any way has now arrivedIt will long be a subject for angry recriminations between the WVS canteen and the ARP and NFS why nothing was done in time; the WVS maintaining that if the ARP and NFS had put their ladders and life saving tackle nearer the pond and not spent their whole afternoon having cups of coffee and cigarettes they coul dhave had all the glory of saving a real life; the ARP and NFS countercharging that if the WVS hadn't got the canteen facing away from the lake whether to avoid the wind or not they did not wish to discuss and hadn't served the coffee so hot that no one could drink it and had been so long over change for those cigarettes they would have been on the spot at once Not exactly a keeper but nice and amusing I wonder what it was like to write in wartime without knowing when it would end? Or how This is a very cosy sort of book despite being set in war time Most of the action took place in tea parties One of the main topics of conversation was a very fat schoolgirl with a father who was a tradesman and had got above himself and earned money which he spent on inappropriately brightly coloured suits I found all of this a bit tiresome Also it was suggested that one young lady who had called off her marriage needed a good beating which was rather shocking Apparently Thirkell did not want her intellectual friends to read her novels which she wrote mostly for financial reasons
