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.
A memoir of Nichols’ house and garden. It’s written in a kind of arch, self-aware tone that I found amusing but which could just as easily have made me put the book down in annoyance. Still, if you’re in the right frame of mind, this is an enjoyable record of the tribulations of the inhabitants of Merry Hall.
