Before Christmas my 7 year old daughter spotted a pink Happy Napper in a store and she was instantly interested in having one. I was surprised because she had wanted a pillow pet for a while, but quickly switched to a Happy Napper.
I’m giving Michael Phillips another try; I haven’t read anything by him in a while. His books are usually long and very wordy, and I tend to pick up books I can finish in a couple hours. However, I do love his series called The Secret of The Rose, and the description of this one intrigued me.
I can’t write my regular review because I have not finished this book yet. I do want to say that so far there is a lot of Scottish history included in the book. It is written in the first person so we only know what the heroine knows. We also know her thoughts and feelings so my reactions mirror hers. I like the info about the harp that has been included so far; and I agree with her that it would be amazing to sit on a cliffside in Scotland and play music.

Another good read by Julie Klassen. At the risk of sounding exactly like the critics – if you like Jane Austen you will like this book. The hero and heroine are inspired by two of Jane Austen’s characters, but from two different books. Like I said in my last review of a book by Klassen I love that she uses quotes at the beginning of each chapter. And these quotes were so-o appropriate. A main element of the story is that the heroine, Mariah, is an author at a time when it’s not popular for a woman to be a novelist. The quotes are often from a female author of that time period or about them. If you read this – don’t skip the quotes!
