Going back to one's childhood day's bring's back so many wonderful memories and this book did just that.
I am sure that the youngsters who read this book will remember it forever and this story also sends an important message about being good vs being bad to children. I also could of played Grandmother Celia and relate stories like this to my children and grandchildren and hopefully my great grandchildren.
I am an avid reader of myster/light thriller,light romance but I have to say that after I read one of Karen's books I was and am absolutely hooked on the way she writes and when one of her books comes to Kindle I put aside my mystery book or whatever else I am reading and start on Karen's stories.
Another Great read Karen for the youngsters and the oldsters !!!! Keep them coming. If all your future stories equal the quality of the six that I have read of your's, I am going to start saying Ditto...Ditto...Ditto
I should have never doubted this author for a second. This is one of the most heartwarming and charming little fairy tales I've had the privilege of reading. I actually started it with my daughter but read ahead because I got so pulled into it. There's the mean old aunt next door, the little girl who's finding magic, the grandma who helps her find the way and... well, there's fairies, people! Fairies! Little human looking things with wings that fly around and glow! While set in the modern times, it had the feel of a story that had been retold before (not ripped off - that's not what I mean at all - but an old story told to little girls at bedtime).
McQuestion has, in all of her books that I've read, an amazing way of transporting you into her story. She makes the places and people come alive. I am pretty darn sure I've met Celia before, somewhere, somehow. Her writing really is THAT good.
I cannot wait to finish this book with my daughter. Her little eyes were all lit up while we were reading it. A note to parents though: If you have a kid (my daughter is 7) that is on the cusp of learning about Santa, etc, there's a line in there that might open up that discussion - depends on if you want it opened or not. I chose to change that sentence a bit myself. *laugh*
For the adults out there... this story will make you believe in fairies yourself. And in the author's talent for creating. To her, I owe a large "I'm very sorry for thinking it was going to suck". I shall never doubt again.
Very very highly recommended. I wish I could say more, but read the description, then go read the book. It's truly beautiful.
deals with issues of friendship, love, faith, and determination with a deft hand. It's ideal to read to even younger children, or even older ones with reading problems or who lack the sophistication to tackle books like Harry Potter. It instructs without scolding and even in the case of describing the misdeeds of Vicky McClutchy, an evil, nasty person, it doesn't do so in such a manner as to
frighten even the youngest of children.
Of course there's the magic and the fairies which we all love and, traditionally, it all ends happily ever after.
