10 thoughts on “A Rebel's Daughter The 1837 Rebellion Diary of Arabella Stevenson Dear Canada

  1. says:

    Now truth be told I do feel than a bit conflicted with regard to how Janet Lunn has presented young Arabella's journal in A Rebel's Daughter The 1837 Rebellion Diary of Arabella Stevenson published in 2006 as part of the Dear Canada series of fictional diaries For yes while I certainly have found how Janet Lunn manages to balance Arabella's diary descriptions of her and yes pretty horrible and often painful lifestyle changes from a rather pampered and used to luxury teenaged daughter of privilege to a basic and often picked on by her superiors scullery maid after her lawyer father has been arrested for being part of the 1837 Upper Canada Rebellion with specific political and historical facts about the reasons for the rebellion both successful and very much engagingly rendered and of course there is also considerably such information included in the supplemental details section of A Rebel's Daughter The 1837 Rebellion Diary of Arabella Stevenson and have indeed also quite enjoyed Arabella's journal voice I also have found some of the negative characters encountered in A Rebel's Daughter The 1837 Rebellion Diary of Arabella Stevenson a bit too overly exaggeratedly nasty and vile for my reading tastes with in particular Arabella's mother being depicted by Janet Lunn and of course therefore also by her fictional diarist Arabella Stevenson as so totally monstrous and stereotypically horrid that I really do tend to consider Arabella's mother not all that realistic but in fact rather like a typical fairy or folk tale nasty with no nuances at all with just arrogance total self centredness and an almost psychotic need to cast blame and blame on and at everyone but herself And combined with the fact that both the cook and Sukey remind me at least for most of A Rebel's Daughter The 1837 Rebellion Diary of Arabella Stevenson rather too much of the villainous Miss Minchin in Frances Hogdson Brunett's A Little Princess while I have certainly and generally quite enjoyed Arabella's diary entries and have found her in many ways also a so called kindred spirit the one sided nastiness and lack of nuance and character development in some if not most of the main encountered villains this has certainly lessened my sense of historical reality with regard to A Rebel's Daughter The 1837 Rebellion Diary of Arabella Stevenson as well as my reading pleasure and has thus also made me consider only two and a half stars as a general ranking but yes rounded up to a low three stars as the rather stereotypical one sidedness of the main antagonists and nasties notwithstanding Arabella's story is still quite engaging and her fictional diaries both descriptive and delightfully lively

    Before William Lyon Mackenzie and the rebellion Arabella Stevenson was an ordinary upper middle class Canadian girl Now Papa is in jail Arabella's older brother Charlie has disappeared and Mama refuses to acknowledge the situation Papa is not a traitor He was supporting reform and doing what he felt was right That doesn't stop Arabella from hating the rebellion and WLM Her whole life changed in one nightMy only complaint with this novel is that Arabella took too long to explain the rebellion Not being Canadian I had to start with the Historical Note to learn all about the rebellion It still doesn't make much sense to me but knowing a bit about British government at the start of the Victorian era it does make sense I absolutely could not put this novel down I had to find out what happened to Arabella and her Papa The story does resemble A Little Princess and I think a little bit of suspension of disbelief is required but I really liked it I learned a lot too Arabella is a great heroine She isn't plucky and resourceful in an unbelievable manner She's strong and brave when she needs to be She is tough and resilient I would not have done as well going through what she went through Most of the secondary characters are stock characters but some surprised me I won't say who because that would spoil the story but for a middle grades book this one has some surprisingly complex characters and deals with a dark and difficult time in Canadian history It is one of the better entries in the series but not my very favorite


  3. says:

    The second Juvenile book I have read in the Dear Canada series I chose this book because I wanted to learn about the 1837 Rebellion in Eastern Canada Arabella Stevenson is a 12 year old girl the daughter of a Barrister At the beginning of the book the rebellion has just started Arabella's father has been arrested and sent to jail for his part in the confrontation Her 15 year old brother is missing Arabella's mother cannot cope and remains in her bedroom Through diary entries we learn how life could have been for the families of those men involved in the rebellion At the back of the book we learn about the actual history of the Rebellion and the author's difficulty obtaining the background information for the story


  4. says:

    It was okay I didn't know about this event before I read this book and didn't feel very well informed afterwards I feel for her though because of her treatment by her mother who I had no sympathy for


  5. says:

    i loved this book it taught me sooooooo much about the rebellion I would recommend this book to anyone


  6. says:

    Great contribution to the series I thought that Arabella was a strong protagonist and I'll be reading it again soon once I haul all of my childhood books out of storage


  7. says:

    Young Arabella Stevenson has lived a comfortable upper class life in the growing city of Toronto Upper Canada But lately her barrister lawyer father has been talking with suspicious characters who want to reform the colony's heavily English immigrant influenced government Finally there unrest explodes in open rebellion and Arabella and her mother are left penniless after their father is jailed and after their sonbrother runs away Mrs Stevenson does not believe that they have no money and leaves Arabella to fend for herself Arabella is forced to flee Although her father's former lawyer Mr Dewhurst and his wife provide a roof over her head it is evident that she Arabella must find employment as a maid to get her and her mother out of poverty Unfortunately her new employers are former family friends the Harvard family Life is difficult Arabella has hardly done any work in her life and the other servants are rude to her because of her background Will Arabella ever adjust to her new life and will a family member take her under her wing?This is one of my favourite books in the series It was a new perspective on the rebellion being set in Upper Canada Ontario rather than in Lower Canada Quebec It also takes place in an urban area unlike many stories in Canada that take place in the wilderness at the time Arabella is a very well developed character and her family members and friends have very distinct personalities I did find Arabella's tendency to shorten peoples names ex It was my day off so I was invited over to Mr D's house and had a lovely afternoon with A and J which can be confusing to the reader as some characters share names surnames that begin with the same letter But this is overshadowed by the book's promising plot and characters 5 Stars


  8. says:

    Arabella Stevenson attends a private school and has servants but her upper class lifestyle is turned on its head when her barrister father is jailed for his part in the Rebellion of 1837 Her brother has disappeared her mother sits and sulks and Arabella is forced to support herself by working as a scullery maid in the home of a former classmate Worse yet she is forced to endure the agony of not knowing whether she will ever see her beloved father againTold in the form of a diary this Canadian historical fiction stays true to a young girl's voice as she is forced to make decisions about her life and her future The story contains fascinating details about Toronto and the class attitudes prevalent in Upper Canada at that time This book would appeal to students from grade 5 8 and corresponds to topics in the Grade 8 history curriculum in Ontario


  9. says:

    This is difficult to rate On the one hand it took me 40 pages to get into it and for such a small book that's a lot but once I did I became enthralled with her story and grew to really admire the main character Arabella Then I got to the epilogue and it kind of ruined everything it felt like the author was just trying to fill space with useless information and shouldn't have been the one to write this story in the first place It felt rushed and sloppy at times


  10. says:

    The plot might echo A Little Princess in a lot of places and a lot of ways but this wonderfully spun tale is interesting enough to stand on its own A great depiction of upper class Toronto in the 1830s with a frisson of darkness at how terrible Arabella's mother is to her throughout For my full review including spoilers check out Young Adult Historical Vault
