But as with all De Lint books, the issues are tackled with a warmth and sensitivity only this writer can muster and there is always the support of the main protagonists family of choice and a bit of the other-worldly to help our heroine out.
There is a bit of a family re-union feel to the book that leaves me worrying that the writer is bidding farewell to the residents of Newford. I sincerely hope this is not the case.
This was definately worth paying import prices for and a must buy for those readers familiar with the writers novels and short stories. If you are a De Lint newbie, check out the earlier books before starting this one - knowing the characters will double the pleasure of this gem of a book
