WOW. WOW. WOW. And WOW again.
I have high expectations (almost unrealistically so) whenever I read a book by Elizabeth George Speare, but each of her books that I have read has met and exceeded these high hopes.
The magnitude of "The Bronze Bow" is staggering. I can only compare the feel of sheer importance of the story to "Johnny Tremain", but I would contend that this one even surpasses that classic in terms of importance of the plot.
There is a pulsating electricity beneath the words of Elizabeth George Speare, a raw hum of power that glows with unmatched luminescence. I was totally riveted the entire time I read this book, watching as the pitch-perfect narrative led me closer and closer to the heartrending and heart-stopping conclusion.
Few books in any genre can compare with "The Bronze Bow", and it is arguably the greatest story of historical fiction that has ever been written for young readers.
