    The Benefactress MOBI Ë Ebook benefactress kindle, The Benefactress EpubExcellent character development to the point that I ached for the heroine's naïveté felt angry with the entrenched older women and hoped the princess would be involved In other words I was drawn into the story despite the fact that Anna's fatal flaw was so painful to watch All of the German culture and such was overwhelming Was it an instructive lesson for readers as well? It certainly did not make Germany appealing compared to England Listening to the book on Librivox read by Helen Taylor made it even better I may not have continued the book without her excellent storytelling What disappointed me deeply was the way the ending was handled After an amazing climax the denouement was a dud Without spoiling anything the feeling to the reader is like one of those oh it was all a

    The Benefactress MOBI Ë Ebook benefactress kindle, The Benefactress Epub35 I absolutely adore the writing I'd say if you're a fan of Elizabeth to read this book but if you haven't read her yet I suggest starting with The Enchanted April This book was beautiful at the beginning but the second half was extremely dramatic and unbelievable All the characters were flawed which I really enjoyed And I thought the character growth was pretty good until the end when some things just seemed too rushed The story is a 3 star for me and the writing is a 5 star

    The Benefactress MOBI Ë Ebook benefactress kindle, The Benefactress EpubThe moral of this story or should I say the philosophy of this story is so profound Sure the style is a bit dated sure it's a bit wordy in places but it's an interesting premise and will keep you turning the pages to see what happens to the heroine and her philanthropic endeavors

    The Benefactress MOBI Ë Ebook benefactress kindle, The Benefactress EpubAn early work by Elizabeth Arnim this book is amusing but by no means as delightful as her nchanted April Its heroine is Anna a young girl whose parents are dead and is living with her brother and his wife Susie Anna is very pretty and Susie is constantly trying to marry her off but Anna will not cooperate preferring to lead an independent life even though she has no visible means of supportWhen an uncle in Germany dies and leaves his estate to her Anna decides to use her newly found money to provide a home for for ladies of quality who have fallen onto hard times Her new German neighbors hardly know what to make of her but she soon has an

    The Benefactress MOBI Ë Ebook benefactress kindle, The Benefactress EpubOver all a good book but not a great book Most characters were irritating written that way on purpose There were two sane main characters who undergo some character development The ending was a bit sudden but also sweet and kinda satisfying like a candy bar that has nuts AND chocolate in it Not von Arnim's best but I did sort of enjoy the idea of the sane surviving among the insane or the reasonable along the unreasonable the Christian among the unchristian the normal among the abnormally insecure or something through support and inner resources that got them through it all Thinking back on it the culture these characters moved through felt a bit Alice in Wonderland Did von Arnim exaggerate? Or were these harmful social sentiments actually that common in German culture of the time? She certainly had plenty of personal experience to fall back on It makes me shudder
