Good Mary Stewart

by Jacc on Mar 12, 2009

These stories are light and easy reading--alway enjoyable. A good relief from a heavy "read"



by cranberry66 on Apr 3, 2007

As always, Mary Stewart charms and draws the reader in with the hint of the unknown and mysterious. This book is realistic enough to have happened and fantastical enough to make you wish it had happened to you. As a child, Gilly leads a somewhat lonely life broken only by infrequent visits from her mother's cousin, Gillis. Gillis' stories of nature and of traveling the world and her encouragement of a lonely child lead to an unexpected inheritance and happiness amidst the suspense of witchcraft and superstition in the English countryside. I found myself rooting for Gilly and happy for her as she made new friends, found new strength, faced fears, and claimed the heritage her older cousin encouraged her to find. A book I couldn't put down with a satisfying conclusion.
