    FREE [And Both Were Young] Underrated underappreciated I mean it didn't hit my buttons and I still loved it I think because it's original How many stories with a widowed father don't have him getting married off? How many stories of a lonely girl have her favorite teacher scolding her for self absorption? How many stories of boarding schools are there in which almos

    FREE [And Both Were Young] This was apparently uite daring when it was originally published in the 1940s so much that it had to be bowdlerized But it seems awfully tame to me I read the original non bowdlerized version and find myself wondering just what they felt they needed to cut out The whole mysterious stranger lurking around subplot seemed pretty truncated to meNevertheless this was a good book It does a good job portraying the claustrophobic almost incestuous

I ve been doing a L Engle read for the last year or so decided to read this standalone in connection with a genre reading challenge February is romance month I previously read this book back when I was in junior highearly high school It was originally published in 1949 which makes it one of her very early novels it appears this was 3rd and I probably read it around 1978It is uite dated but that doesn t mean it isn t also enjoyable It is set in a Swiss boarding school which was one of the things that fascinated me when I read it as a public school student growing up in Boise Idaho A Swiss boarding school seemed like one of the most exotic interesting things ever and I frankly envied Philippa for what I perceived as a wonderful opportunityThis time around I enjoyed the fact that Flip was obviously an introvert and I was interested in how L Engle approached her introversion Being an introvert in a boarding school would be tough it s not a place where solitude is easily accessed Being an introvert myself I felt for Flip and understood her hunger to spend time alone and didn t like the way the various characters approached her need for uiet No one really seemed to understand much less respect the fact that a young woman might need to spend time alone to recharge her batteries This rings really true even today Flip didn t always handle herself well but her peers also really didn t understand her and they seemed to expect that she would change to suit their expectations rather than suiting their expectations to her character which was frustratingThe romance is extremely chaste with some mild kissing between Flip and Paul I also grew up skiing which might have been another reason that this book made such an impression on me as a young woman since a ski meet represented a major plot point in the book There is apparently an updated edition of the book which restored some of L Engle s original manuscript which had been cut by her publishers because it either referenced death or was sexually suggestive Set in Europe in 1946 many of the various characters are dealing with the aftermath of WWII and the Jewish genocide More than one character has family that was murdered in the concentration camps It is sort of astonishing to me that given the time and the subject matter it was considered appropriate to sanitize that topic And having read it I can t actually imagine how the words sexually suggestive could ve been applied to this book All of the adult characters appear to be celibate and Paul and Flip share a couple of kissesI don t think it has worn uite as well as some of L Engle s other work but I still enjoyed it Philippa Hunter apparently makes a cameo appearance in one of the later works A Severed Wasp published in 1983 Of Water and
