I met this author on Figment, which is a website for young authors to connect and share their works. And have fun. Her other writing is wonderful, including (but not limited to) wondrous fairy tales and cute, magical romances and other things of the like. Her blog is here ([...]) and her Figment page is here ([...]) if you want to check it out.
Her writing style is so liquid. That probably sounds strange, but I like using words in new ways. It flows and tumbles beautifully down hills and up mountains, and you cheerfully skip alongside it, savoring each carefully picked word and phrase.
On the whole, the style of the chapbook or novelette or whatever you wish to call it is completely adorable.
A lot of it takes place in a train station, with one of the main characters called Stig Hemming working as a porter after escaping Wolframite Boarding School. He's an interesting character, obviously smitten with the our heroine, Harriet, but tries to keep it hidden, only revealing his interest in her to his family, telling them how she dresses like a forest creature, much to her contentment when Harriet finds out.
Harriet herself is also quite a character any girl can relate to. She's a photographer, a dreamer, and a mori girl(one who dresses and even lives like she belongs in a forest). She goes after what she wants, be that a route to a real forest, or Stig himself.
I liked how the forest itself was almost a character in the book. It definitely stirred an already present longing for adventures under the shade of oak limbs in my heart again.
I definitely recommend this book if your looking for a quick little story to brighten your day or to keep you company under the covers of your bed.
The imagery, the atmosphere, the intriguing characters- in a nutshell, I'd highly recommend this novella to anyone looking for a quick escape to the forest.
You will not be disappointed!!!
