Sarah made a critical mistake She was supposed to meet her famous guardian at last soon, but she wasn t at all thrilled to be following the orders of a complete old man who had little interest in her for many years So, she threw a party and invited a couple of her friends A stranger showed up, and since he was so nice and different, she opened up to him and revealed her plan to get rid of her guardian She even flirted with him and let him kiss her Then, the shocking truth came He was none other than her guardian or B.J as she calls him She decided to defy him in every possible way and he was determined to straight her mixed believes and lead her and her life without emotional involvement It s a fine story, but the silly heroine gave it away She reached a certain maturity at the end of the story Yet, it is still cast a lot of doubt over her relationship with James, her guardian, due to the 19 years gap I guess an 18 years old girl married to a 37 years old man was the norm in the 70 s There are a lot of guardian ward love stories written by harlequin authors in that period I like guardian ward stories, but this one was not that convincing It was fun, nevertheless Not boring even

dictionary, a sty is a pen or enclosure for swine, or a messy, dirty or debauched place Unless I skimmed over some reference, I don t get the relevance here.Anyway, onto our protagonists Sarah Silver is seventeen and beautiful or becoming so and rather idle and spoilt, getting into parties and clothes, yet she bizarrely has no friends her own age.James Fane is in his mid thirties, worldly and I don t understand why this book is titled The Silver Sty Where what is the sty According to the dictionary, a sty is a pen or enclosure for swine, or a messy, dirty or debauched place Unless I skimmed over some reference, I don t get the relevance here.Anyway, onto our protagonists Sarah Silver is seventeen and beautiful or becoming so and rather idle and spoilt, getting into parties and clothes, yet she bizarrely has no friends her own age.James Fane is in his mid thirties, worldly and very attractive and intelligent He s smart enough to know that he can t just lay down the law in assuming guardianship of his wayward ward is there any other kind of ward in romance fiction so decides to let her make a few mistakes and learn from them.Just to highlight the usual Sara Seale somewhat borderline age gap theme In the brief white bathing suit, her slender body still had the immature angles of extreme youth She looked about fifteen What s really superb about this book and unusual for Seale is that they kiss in the first chapter Yes there s sexual attraction there from the start Sarah, not realising James is her long absent guardian, invites him outside in the moonlight to a swing seat She lies and tells him she s nearly twenty two he s well aware of who she is In the soft, light her rather high cheek bones stood out in delicate relief She blinked nervously once or twice, but her invitation was quite clear He kissed her gently once, felt her stiffen, then yield with soft, inexperienced lips, and smiled as she moved hurriedly back to her own corner Hooray What a pity we have to wait through a convoluted plot of teenage rebellion, gambling and even older men until the last two pages to get a repeat performance He looked at her long and steadily, then stooped to kiss her We do get a good dose of dominance as wellRemember, Sarah, I told you once if you married me, you stayed married I meant it, and although I m not going to make the mistake again of waiting to give you time to grow up, there won t be any second chances once we re married It will be for keepsI enjoyed this one Even though I find gambling plots a chore because they re so predictable, and would have preferred arealistic cast of London characters with a fewpeople Sarah s age I ve read hundreds of M B books over the years But if I stop to recollect a few memorable ones, I d surely find this one in such a list.Whats so extra ordinary in this story , you may ask Nothing Its just a sweet, lyrical, old world romance novel Where the ward and guardian make a turbulent but totally worth it transition to husband and wife.She is young, sprightly He is suave, sophisticated Their first encounter itself makes them sit up and take notice of each other.He is attracted to he I ve read hundreds

lyrical, old world romance novel Where the ward and guardian make a turbulent but totally worth it transition to husband and wife.She is young, sprightly He is suave, sophisticated Their first encounter itself makes them sit up and take notice of each other.He is attracted to her almost right at the beginning But she takes her time to realize her feeling of awe and hero worship is actually something much deeper I like the way she struggles in the end to explain her feelings to him And I love his restraint and his frustration while exercising that restraint Oh, and its his life mission to rescue her from all sorts of teen trouble that she gets into Poor guy, what patience And what does she think about him She says it in one sentence I think JB is grand There is a sweet doctor who seems to see the undercurrent of emotions between the lead couple a lotclearly than anybody else His observations are amusing, heartening.I am running out of specific reasons why I liked the book It gave me an over all warm feeling I loved it , and I hope to try and read it once again after a few years Hoping the magic lasts very absorbing n captivating read though it wasa saga than a romance story sara had lots of interactions wid other characters, yet it was a wonderful read i did not miss 1 page james looked upon sara as a child at 1st he was still affected by clare s betrayal n thought abt her however, when he did meetup wid clare again, he knew dat dat part of his life was over infact, he did not see what attracted him 2 her years ago, apart her beauty ofc it s a very touching

guardian story quite like Sara Seale Every one that I ve read, I ve enjoyed immensely.When Sarah was a toddler her father was jailed for fraud, ruining many people and pushing Sarah s mother into suicide John Silver had survived the fraud and felt badly for the child, so he adopted her Sarah s spirit and John Silver s unorthodox lifestyle suited each other, but ten years later he took ill and died He left his immense wealth to James, a man whose family had been ruined financially by Sarah s father and who was still struggling James was named Sarah s guardian, and through solicitors arranged for her life to remain much as it had been, with a woman in residence as her companion and fees paying for exclusive schools Sarah had always been allowed to do as she pleased, and fancy schools were out With James travelling the world and enjoying the freedom his new wealth provided, Sarah became known as the town s willful wild child After three years away, James realized he d been away too long and that Sarah needed a hands on Guardian, not one who simply paid the bills Though Sarah fights for the independence she s always known, she comes to realize she rather likes having James around He s not at all the stuffy old man she d once imagined, but someone she quickly learns to confide in James is completely charmed by Sarah s honest and forthright manners and at first lets her have her freedom to do as she pleases Dining in London with James, a couple approaches them, the woman is James former fiancee who had rejected him when he was still poor for a rich man Now a widow, Clare wonders how she can get back with James and tries to do it through Sarah The man with Clare is one of dubious character, and he takes an instant shine to Sarah Mick is intrigued by the girl and the next time she s in London but without James he seeks her out At first Sarah finds Mick exciting and then later she comes to fear him, for he d introduced her to gambling and is now indebted to him He holds these debts over her head, as he wants her, and pressures her to go away with him Clare s little hints that James sense of responsibility to Sarah is keeping him from pursuing his own happiness, has Sarah all confused She s fallen in love with James so when Mick tells her about her real father, the one who went to jail for ruining people, including James, she worries that Clare is right and she should free James from his responsibility.I think this story is one of the last from Ms Seale Written in the late 60 s early 70 s, it focuses on the new freedoms young people, particularly women, have achieved Sarah drinks alcohol, smokes, drives a sporty car, and is often out late dancing the night away She s introduced to gambling and after an amazing winning streak she ends up in debt And yet, she s still very much an innocent, naive to the darker sides of the people she s meet James is a strong hero and he tries to beof a guide to Sarah than a rod of iron setting down rules He s successful most of the time, until Clare comes along and through Mick tears away all James has accomplished Of course, he s fallen in love with his ward, but he s wants her to grow up and make her own choice, even though Sarah has already declared he owns her heart I like that Ms Seale gives us insights into James feelings and doesn t make him a dark horse Published 1941 This version is the later reissue.
