Outside Reading 2 Post B

So far in the story she has described the scene and her family history, which is very important to understand how her family has the wealth and their nobility. In this next section she starts talking about her early childhood, and how her parents treated her among her other siblings and some of her parent’s bad habits. In the book she describes her father putting himself in danger with these car races that he does while he’s drinking He suffered many accidents and they got worse and worse. His final accident was almost deadly when his car did 3 somersaults and he went through the sunroof. He suffered a fractured skull, broken ribs, and a broken nose. I think he is putting himself in danger and doesn’t care and isn’t thinking of his family. He isn’t thinking of what would happen to his family if he were to die, and doesn’t care that he is putting his family through. At the age of 8 she and her sister Emma go to the boarding school named Hanford. It was nice to have each there, while they were away from their parents at such a young age. Her parents were preoccupied with other things so they would send their children to boarding school. Her father was always off in Wales doing work, and even forgot her birthday one year while she was at boarding school. Her mother kept having more children, and was preoccupied with them. Also one of the kids had some health problems and was in the hospital for a few months. I think her parents don’t care of all of their children and are neglected. They send away their children so they don’t have to deal with them and their needs. So far I’m getting the idea her life may have seen liked a fairy tale, but in reality was not.
