Read full description of the books:
This is an interesting and clever novel, which intersperses Nancy’s journal entries, and postcards home, throughout the text. It is 1920 and Nancy Parker is fourteen. Having left school, Nancy would like to become an actress, work in a shop or, best of all, become a detective. What the future actually holds though is a position as a ‘General Maid,’ to Mrs Bryce. However, Nancy is certainly a girl who tries to make the best of things and she throws herself into her new job with gusto.
Mrs Bryce takes a house at the seaside and Nancy is to accompany her. Once there, Nancy finds herself on the trail of a thief and teams up with Ella, the daughter of a professor who lives next door and Quentin Ives from the vicarage.
I really enjoyed this book. I read it with my daughter, who is nine, and I would probably recommend it for 10+. The character of Nancy is a delight and I liked her journal entries and the letters to her beloved Aunty Bee. This is a good, old fashioned adventure, with lots of humour, but there is also a lot of interesting historical background. My daughter was fascinated to read about Nancy being expected to find a job so young, and how hard she had to work at that age, for example. I really hope there are more books featuring Nancy Parker; a great new historical mystery series for children and young adults.
