Children and Teenagers


The stories listed below are ones in which we enter the mind of a child or teenager, experiencing the world from his or her own point of view. Among many fine portraits of children and teens are Violet in Harry Muir, another memorable Violet in Valentine and His Brother, little Geoff in A Country Gentleman, Jock (a child in The Greatest Heiress and a teenager in Sir Tom), and the teenage girl in The Library Window.

While these children are in the main sympathetic, Madonna Mary explores the psyche of Mary's youngest boy Will, discontented and "twisted" in his view of the world - and whose misunderstanding of his mother's circumstances results in his launching a scandal which may be impossible to quell.
