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.
I was expecting this to be a straight non-fiction about the village of Le Chambon during WWII. It’s actually written as a philosophy book, concerned with ethics. I also thought (because it was billed as a new purchase) that it was recently written. Once I got over my disorientation, I found Hallie’s mixture of narrative and examination to be very insightful and compelling.
