I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith

Quick Overview

Cassandra Mortmain records the characters of her unconventional family and the transformation of all their lives when a handsome American landlord arrives. This comedy romance was the first novel of the author who became best known for "A Hundred and One Dalmatians".


An enchanting novel for older children by the author of "101 Dalmations."
Seventeen-year-old Cassandra and her family live in not-so-genteel poverty in a ramshackle old English castle. Over six turbulent months, Cassandra tries to hone her writing skills, filling three notebooks with sharply funny yet poignant entries which chronicle the great changes that take place within the castle's walls, and her own first descent into love.
A BBC production is planned, to be directed by Tim Fyell of "Madame Bovary" fame, with Mike Newell as executive producer.
