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.

Betsy's Wedding - Maud Hart Lovelace, Vera Neville Betsy’s Wedding by Maud Hart Lovelace: Always a lovely comfort read. The last chapter of Betsy’s story is both heart-warming and agonizing, as Betsy returns from Europe and gets married, while the world prepares for World War I. Also lovely for its realistic description of the everyday balancing act between being a writer and a person.
