Sleep, Pale Sister
by Joanne Harris (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
Hmmm. I struggled with this a bit because I generally adore Joanne Harris. This is her "lost" second novel, and while it is certainly an improvement on her first novel, the dire " The Evil Seed", it doesn't quite live up to her later work.
