This story revolves around a young girl whose father has died and a shady business partner and his family are awarded guardianship of that girl in the late business owners will. It seems simple enough at that point and you may have read stories like it, but press on as it is just beginning to get interesting at that point. Enter the curious and wonderful character that is Mana who is hired as governess to educate the young girl in manners. She has some kind of strange ability, and is a resident from a strange island where the people have come under the sway of the new business owners and a bad king. I wont ruin it for any new readers but that is the way its going.
What makes this wonderful and set apart from stories out there heading in a similar direction is the skill and daring of the writer. Most stories have a single or possibly even dual focal point where you live the story through the main character. this story establishes a single man character (at least this is how I understood it), but her story heads out in one direction and another character takes over. for me that's pretty daring but as I said, it takes a great writer to make that work, and she really did make that work- wonderfully so. the secondary characters were rich, their struggle interesting, and the story so well told that the whole thing was carried off perfectly.
What we get from this is a lively, mysterious adventure and some very memorable characters. also, I see there is a second story and I would say this one sells the next.
yep, im sucked in
I have a collection called "Buy More" -- I had put this book into it by the time I was a third of the way through. The word that kept coming to mind was "delicious." It felt very much like one's first childhood encounter with the Dr. Doolittle or Mary Poppins books -- like tapping into a cozy tradition that was there long before you and that will endure long after. I loved reading this book.
Every now and then, there's a brief cluster of random typos, but not to worry -- overall, the book's grammar and editing are excellent.
