it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, germany, middle-east, of-norway, religion, short-stories
Read in September, 2010

** spoiler alert ** I jumped to the back of this collection to read Ehrengard first. What a story! It starts out like a fairytale - a handsome prince...a lovely princess, then a benign (is he though?) artist-arranger is added, then a warrior maiden. How WILL it end!

My five star rating is, so far, for this story only. The story Babette's Feast is also in this collection, and is the original reason I am reading the book.

Edited to add this last bit after I finished reading all the stories.

I can't believe I'm the only one (here on goodreads anyway) who loves Tempests, the story of a 19th century Norwegian girl who becomes an actress and is very much swept up in playing the part of Ariel in Shakespeare's The Tempest.

Gwen WEll how about that. I checked this book out last week because of Babbette's feast. I haven't started it yet so I didn't read your spoiler.
