By Singing Light

Solstice Wood - Patricia A. McKillip eh. This is supposedly a sequel to Winter Rose, and while I think it does frame that book in an interesting way, I also have problems with the modern, real-world setting, which just ended up confusing me. I couldn’t figure out exactly where they were. And I just felt like Winter Rose wasn’t our world so the implication that it was just…didn’t work for me. So I’m still not sure what to think about this one. [Oct. 2009]
