In the land of Calundra, there is a saying that everyone knows. Some tales are true, some are false, and for some—it can be hard to tell the difference. It is a land that is given to tales; tales of kings and priests, of woodcutters and village girls, and even of faeries.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. Gentle fantasy, with a good fairy and a mostly clueless & reluctant-to-believe priest; some good touches of humor; good, uplifting book. Well written with multiple characters I could see & hear. A joy for me to read. I found it as a Kindle freebie! Can't beat that!

This is such a lush and lovely book! Characters are vivid, as is description. The style is a little old-fashioned, which I love--it's rare to come across so many complex and rich sentences (this is one of the reasons I love Wind in the Willows, too).

A lot of the contemporary fairy-tale stories I love are either gritty (think

It was pretty good, but needs to learn the difference between rein and reign.

E.J. Weber used to read books at recess instead of jumping rope. The first thing she does when she moves to a new town is get a library card. She has a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and currently lives in Connecticut. Growing up, her heroes were Victorian writers and old movie stars. She has fond memories of reading science fiction and fantasy novels with her brothers, and they're still among ...more
