about

Kit Pearson’s most recent and critically acclaimed novel tells the story of the 5 Bell children, each of them coping in various ways in the aftermath of their mother’s death. Set in the 1950s and seen through the perspective of the middle child, 11-year-old Corrie, A Perfect Gentle Knight illustrates how a rich fantasy life both helps and hinders children trying to cope with loss, loneliness, and growing up.While elder sister Roz is growing up and out of the desire for fantasy games, eldest brother Sebastian, who fancies himself Sir Lancelot in their Round Table game, continues to need it as much as ever, creating tension in the family and concern for Corrie, who worries that he may have lost his grip on reality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book Like many Canadians of my generation, I have adored Pearson's writing since I was a kid. Now, as an adult, I still get excited for a new release from one of my favourite authors. To me, this one reads differently from her earlier works that entranced me as a child, but still heartily recommend to young adults and adults alike.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay I read this novel a while back, so I don't remember all of it, but I remember that it made me sad when I read it. Maybe if I read it now I'd appreciate the content more. A sobering book.
