Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen
MY RATING: 5 of 5 Stars
Hmmm. Musing, here. Where should I shelve this beautiful book? A tricky question. It’s a love story without being a Romance. It’s poetry without the rhymes. It’s a fantasy without a single vampire, werewolf, faery, or dragon. I guess I should just shelve it under “Books I Will Treasure Forever.” The writing is lyrical, the story line, pure magic. I fell in love with it all on the very first page. And isn’t Melody Cassen’s cover simply stunning? It evokes the mystical qualities of this lovely tale to perfection. Especially the apple tree! You’ll never look at a Winesap or Granny Smith quite the same way again. My best recommendation to you is, “Read it.” Soon. I can’t imagine anyone not being completely entranced.
I have read all of Sarah Addison Allen’s books, and she ranks at the top of my list of authors whose work I will never forget.
If you decide to place an order with amazon, clicking through from my links will give me credit. If you are enjoying my reviews on Bookin’ It, it’s a great way to let me know! Thanks!
