By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Lady in Waiting

Lady In Waiting - Rosemary Sutcliff Good but so sad! Even worse because I knew what was coming. It's one of the few Sutcliff books with a woman as the main character. It's also far less plotty than many of hers, which was fine with me. I was strongly reminded in places of Elizabeth Goudge, in terms of the general style & also the key importance of an ilex tree!
