This is going to be a short review. 😀
In Strings in Hollow Shells Sandra is a city girl living in London. Now to mend her broken heart, she’s vacationing at Mrs. Prideaux’s country house which has “an atmosphere of tranquility,” and where no one has died of a broken heart, been betrayed or forsaken. However, it is evident that Sandra doesn’t think much of the countryside or its residents. She thinks it’s a nice to be in the country when you need some peace, “to play the gramophone all day in the garden and read poetry,” but it is no place for adventures. However, soon enough, she’d realize how wrong she was and be surprised by what countryside has to offer her.
Strings in Hollow Shells is an entertaining read, but I didn’t care much for Sandra’s haughty ways. So compared to the previous stories I read in this collection, I liked Strings in Hollow Shells a lot less!
