Dress Rehearsal

Dress Rehearsal

(1959)
(Book 11 in the Sadlers' Wells series)
A novel by

 
"Dress Rehearsal" is the eleventh in the Sadler's Wells series and yet Lorna Hill is still finding ways in which to show that learning is a life-long process. The series had been launched well and we can already see that Lorna Hill can use these central characters as yardsticks for the future behaviour of the succeeding heroines and heroes. Veronica and Sebastian may be kept on the periphery of the action but they still serve a useful purpose and the reader is still interested in their fate. Such are the essentials of a series format; from Veronica to Jane to Ella to Rosanna to Sylvia to Nona. By the sixth book the reader will realise that a young man will come along and that the girl will have to make a choice. What supports the reader through the rest of the books is the tapestry of familiar people and familiar places that has already been woven and which can act as a backdrop to the increasingly familiar story-lines. They really are old friends and old acquaintances and, in some cases, like that of Nigel and Fiona, old enemies.
