The Case of the Peculiar Pink Fan

Summary

When Enola Holmes encounters her friend Lady Cecily hiding behind a pink fan, she finds it peculiar. Cecily is being held hostage in an abysmal orphanage, forced into a miserable marriage. Enola joins forces with the much older famous brother Sherlock who she has fought desperately to elude, and risks her own freedom to rescue her friend.

Review

The fourth in the series of Nancy Springer’s Enola Holmes stories is an interesting read. Enola’s first-person narrative brings the reader into the story, taking them on a journey back in time to Victorian London.

The reading level does require a certain level of understanding since the word usage is from that Victorian time period. There is certainly some interesting and perhaps confusing verbiage, but it does add to the time transformation of the reader.

My only criticism is that Enloa, though the sister of the world-famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, does achieve a lot of her successes just by luck. That being said, it is still interesting to see how she tries to use disguises and her drive to help solve the crime.
