This review is from: Wordsmith's Tale, The (Paperback)
This book has been a great pleasure to read - written by a true Wordsmith! It is beautifully written and a real page-turner, set in late Anglo-Saxon England, covering the events surrounding a family over a period of one hundred years. Their stories are told in a fast-paced and easy-to-read style where not a word is wasted. Lives, both long and sometimes very brief, are painted in a colourful and often witty style with aside comments from Thomas the Piper who is the storyteller throughout. Even the less appealing characters are engaging. The main protagonists of the different periods and their interlinking narratives with their dramas of survival, love and loss stayed with me well after I finished this book. The only regret I had was finishing the book. The hope that I have is that there will be a sequel or a series!
