As a child, Kathy - now thirty-one years old - lived at Hailsham, a private school in the scenic English countryside where the sheltered children were brought up to believe that they were special, and that their well-being was crucial not only for themselves but for the society they would eventually enter. Kathy had long ago put this idyllic past behind her, but when two of her Hailsham friends come back into her life, she stops resisting the pull of memory.
Oh what a sad, sad book. I really enjoyed it. It’s a fictional autobiography. Kathy H is in her last year as a carer. She tells about her life growing up in what seems like English boarding school fro orphans but isn’t quite. Her story feeds you just enough pieces that you want to keep reading to see what is actually going on.
