"The Firebird" is Susanna Kearsley's latest (and may I suggest greatest?) release. As you know from last month, I love Ms Kearsley's writing, but this one was a real treat. Not only did she bring back a couple of beloved characters from the mystical "Shadowy Horses," she also wove two beautiful love stories together (she is the Queen at doing that!) spanning two time periods, and simultaneously (and smoothly) taught me so much history I was practically salivating throughout. I have crushes on far too many of her male characters, I have to admit. Five stars for sure. How am I going to handle waiting until 2015 for her next novel?
Note: Ms Kearsley is also a Canadian ... I love sharing Canadian talent!
I write because
There is nothing
quite so bittersweet
as reading the final line
of your favourite books.
What comes next?
Where can you turn to find another favourite author?
I hope I can send you a few leads from here. I'm not reviewing books, only recommending those I've loved in the past.
