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.

Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor - R.D. Blackmore, Michelle Allen I tried to read this once years ago and couldn’t make it because the language was too hard. Which is odd, because I found it a very easy and entertaining read! John Ridd’s voice is a marvel–an Exmoor (Devon and Somerset) farmer overlaid with a classical education, with a good helping of wry self-awareness. While Lorna is a bit of a damsel in distress, I really enjoyed this one.
