A satisfying and beautiful read,
This review is from: The Fields Laid Waste (Paperback)
It's said that excellence is it's own reward. The excellence that is anything written by Christina Croft, carries the kind of reward sought every time we stand in line to pay at a book store, or add to our carts at Amazon. How many times it's found is another matter.
After finishing The Fields Laid Waste, it is my opinion that Christina Croft is this generation's Dickens. An artist with a pen, who draws her readers in and doesn't let them go. While The Fields Laid Waste is a work of fiction, it is largely accurate in it's history. And if ever there was a heroine who begs to walk off the page and into a film it's Caroline Brandwith.
Quite simply, a satisfying and beautiful read...
