Cassandra records her day-to-day life of what it is like to live in a castle on a 40-year-lease. She does this to practice her writing and her shorthand. She lives in the castle with her father, once a famous author, and her older sister. After a bad experience, her father stops writing and her family slowly sinks into poverty. But there is a promise just around the corner, she hopes.
I Capture the Castle was really well written, but I wasn’t very fond of the storyline. The first part was good, but honestly, the second half was awful. The main idea of the story changed and so did the characters’ objectives. I did like the characters, they were really well thought out and realistic, but they didn’t all go together. So I’m not sure whether to recommend this book or not.
