it was amazing

I love Flavia de Luce. I want to adopt this almost 12-year-old girl and fill her days with love, validation, good food, and encouragement. They are the elements missing from her life although some of the non-family characters do make an effort..
As in all the books, I found myself mesmerized being in Flavia’s mind in 1951 England. These books are unique and very special.
In SPEAKING FROM AMONG THE BONES, book five of the wonderful series, Flavia helps find a corpse buried under the church. Using her well-honed chemist skills and her no-holds-barred sense of adventure, she tries to discover how it died and how it got there. Needless to say, she is successful.
This book differs from the previous ones in a few ways involving her relationships with members of her family and her reactions to other people. For example, her sisters are not as vicious towards her.
WARNING: Do not read the end until you’ve finished the book.
I’m giving it five stars only because giving more isn’t an option.
I hope the sixth book is published soon
