When MaryAnn meets Gawain she feels immediately drawn to him. He is a wise, but simple man. He's mysterious and he clearly has secrets. What are they? Wychewood becomes much more lively when the handsome Ned arrives. He doesn't make a great first impression, but maybe if MaryAnn gives him a chance he might prove not to be so bad after all. Will Wychewood bring MaryAnn the peace she hoped to find and will she discover why her daughter stopped speaking?
A Girl I Knew is a beautiful story about a magical place. I immediately loved Wychewood because of the wonderful comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. Valerie-Anne Baglietto has given the house a gorgeous soul and to me it felt like it was one of the main characters. MaryAnn is strong and kindhearted and Beth is such a sweet little girl. I enjoyed the fact that they both can be themselves at Wychewood and that being at the house makes them grow and blossom. Gawain is an enigma, which instantly intrigued me. I was curious to find out more about him and his story is incredibly interesting. Ned is more straightforward and he's a good guy. I immediately liked him, especially his honesty. The characters of A Girl I Knew are definitely special, all in a different distinctive way.
Valerie-Anne Baglietto mixes reality with fairytales and I love that about her work. Her stories are enchanting and compelling and she has a great way with words that gives her stories a dreamlike quality. I love her mystical way of writing combined with honest realistic sentences, it makes her books unusual and surprising. I highly recommend any of her stories. A Girl I Knew is fantastic and I enjoyed reading it very much.
(Okay, truth is I only have the one, the others are ratty old things.) And I pretended that was at the very least Prosecco in my water glass. And my glass was a hand-blown flute, not an insulated thingy I bought on vacation in FL. Was delicious - the Prosecco - and so was this book! Thank you, Valerie-Anne Baglietto!
