“in the rhythm”

A sweet series by Monica Furlong, given to me as “homework” by someone who knew how much I’d love these wonderful stories about learning how to live with and use magical powers. I’m almost done with Wise Child, which – while written first, is best “read second” (according to the expert) – follows the now-grown Juniper as she nurtures a child much like she herself was nurtured herself. There’s one book left in the Doran Trilogy: Colman. He’s a small, brave friend of Wise Child’s – courageous because he acts even when he feels fear.
A review of this trilogy is combined here with a review of Lois Lowry, author of The Giver.

One thought on ““in the rhythm””

  1. I read the book as well, and recomend it. Monica Furlong is a great writer. I still have yet to read “Colman”.
