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.

Sprig Muslin - Georgette Heyer Sprig Muslin was one I had read before but forgotten the plot of. And now I have forgotten the plot again. So clearly, it's not exactly memorable. After looking it up, I remembered! It's an enjoyable one, slightly more down-to-earth than most Heyer. But again, not exactly memorable (reminds me strongly of The Foundling, now that I think about it).


I like this one, which I had mostly forgotten about. Although Amanda can be a tad annoying, she’s also a more compassionate character than some of her type. And Hester is great. (I do so love a competent heroine.) [Oct. 2011]
