      This is one of those little-known books that is actually very good. I bought it because it sounded unique and interesting, and I was very pleased with how it turned out. It is strange to me that I had never heard about it from anyone else, and never heard word of it since.

      The author was very good with words, and had great attention to


      detail. Her characters were well developed and worthy of affection, and her settings were vivid and lovely.

Perhaps it doesn’t have enough appeal from the outside, but really it was a worthy story.
