Changing Climate In “The Snow Globe”


thJust as in, The Last Summer the author used the early 1900 as the time period for The Snow Globe. The saga of the Forbes family was compounded by the landscape of the British people trying to recover from Work War I. The pomp and tradition of the Forbes family made this read like a Downton Abbey soap opera. 

The plot used illegitimate children, lost love, and love affairs to test the characters. Despite the scandalous plot, the writing just didn’t connect those events in a meaningful way to the people. Everything felt superficial and undeveloped. Compared to The Last Summer, which I loved, this was a disappointment. The main character, Daisy, didn’t have half the depth that some of Kinghorn’s prior characters did. This was okay, but I only finished it because I was stuck somewhere without anything else to read.
