I Ordered a Table for Six Summary

I Ordered a Table for Six by Noel Streatfeild

Adela Framley seems to be a perfect citizen. She's a proud mother, she runs a charity for homes which have been bombed and wants to hold a dinner party in aid of the charity's patron, Gardiner Penrose. But are there dark motives behind her good actions?

Adela invites a curious mixture of friends and family to a fancy restaurant nearby and over the course of the dinner party we move between each guest's daily troubles and anxieties . . . until a catastrophic event puts an end to their soiree.

Carnegie Award winning author Noel Streatfeild takes us on a thought-provoking tour of tragedy and family life in wartime London in her poignant novel, I Ordered a Table for Six.

About Noel Streatfeild

Mary Noel Streatfeild was born in Sussex in 1895. She was one of five children born to the Anglican Bishop of Lewes and found vicarage life very restricting. During World War One, Noel and her siblings volunteered in hospital kitchens and put on plays to support war charities, which is where she discovered her talent on stage. She studied at RADA to pursue a career in the theatre and after ten years as an actress turned her attention to writing adult and children's fiction. Her experiences in the arts heavily influenced her writing, most notably her famous children's story Ballet Shoes which won a Carnegie Medal and was awarded an OBE in 1983. Noel Streatfeild died in 1986.
