From two parts of the world thousands of miles apart and at least that much different in culture you get to children who have in fact been treated very similarly and have very much the same issues.
If Martha had been allowed to care for Colin without the interference of others, as she was for Mary, Colin would be a very different child!

The only one who's not afraid of a spoiled child is another spoiled child!The descriptions of the garden are so well written. I think Dickon and the garden are both magical, the way they help Mary and Colin. I love when Mary speaks Yorkshire. And the way Colin commands everyone is very funny.
I think, therefore I drive people nuts.
