Read in March, 2012

My elder son Justin had Professor Theodora Goss for a class at Boston University his freshman year (he's a junior now). He has always spoken so highly of Prof. Goss that I was excited to read her two-sided love story. Incredible. I started with Brendan's story. The story was so engrossing. I loved his perspective on his relationship with Evelyn. I loved the mystical aspect of their relationship and the medieval connection with THE TALE OF THE GREEN KNIGHT. Magic, romance.
Evelyn's story bought an entirely different perspective and insight to their relationship. I am actually glad I didn't read her story first. But then again, maybe because I didn't, I'm biased? There were things about her that I am really glad I didn't know before I read Brendan's tale. I think it would have changed my thoughts and taken some of the mystery away. But as I said, who knows?
The idea behind THE THORN AND THE BLOSSOM is so clever.

The story unfolds in an accordion, so that also was unique.

I loved it. I highly recommend this very quick read!
