it was amazing
Recommended for: Anyone who likes fantasy or fairytales...
Read in August, 2009

If I could describe this book in one word, it would definatly be "gorgeous". The language, the atmosphere... I almost forgot about reality reading it! You may be thinking "who wants to read a book about a little white horse?" Honestly, its not like that at all. The book is much, much more than tea parties and riding sidesaddle, although we first meet the characters in a lovely horse-draw carrige...

Maria Merryweather, who recently became an orphan, is sent to live with her cousin Sir Benjamen with her governess and stubborn dog. She is instantly captivated by the magical beauty of Moonacre Manor and feels right at home the moment she enters the castle. But beneath all the whimsical beauty, Maria starts to unravel the strange history of the manor--something much darker and more mysterious than could ever be believed of her new, picturesque home. She will soon learn that everything is not what it seems in this beautiful world of hers...

A maze of caverns, forests, friendship and tangled-up love stories, The Little White Horse is sure to please even those who don't believe in fairytales.
