Wise Child by Monica Furlong
Wise Child

Amara_starleaf, November 19, 2007

This enchanting tale by Monica Furlong is sure to keep readers hooked. Told in Wise Child's point of view it is a tale of preserverance, in which a small girl must choose between the likes of good and evil. I am reminded of a quote by Rainer Marra Rilke, "For Beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror we can just barely endure, and we admire it so; because is calmly disdains to destroy us."

Juniper
Juniper

Amara_starleaf, November 19, 2007

Monica Furlong has outdone herself again with this prequel to "Wise Child". Delving into the past, we come to learn more about Juniper and how she aquired her powers. Readers will enjoy Juniper's transformation from Princess to Doran, as she comes to realize too that looks can be decieving, and that what is inside is what truely counts.

Colman

Amara_starleaf, November 19, 2007

A better ending for Monica Furlong's trilogy I could not have asked for. The tale is wrought with twists and turns, as it is seen through the eyes of neither Juniper or Wise Child, nor Euny... but through the unexpected: Wise Child's cousin, Colman. Although he sees differently then the former, he too realizes that seeing isn't always believing. A great read, with enough depth to be enjoyable to anyone of any age.
