Who is the Marsh King, and who is his daughter?
on 30 August 2016
I was confused about the title. Who is the Marsh King, and who is his daughter? Is this some reference to the folk tale of the same name? If so, I didn't get it. Can anyone advise me about this?
Many years ago I read one of Chadwick's books and I didn't think much of it. I thought I would try her again. I read the first few pages and gave up; a few weeks later I came back to it. I have always been interested in John's lost jewels and that chapter (when we first meet Nicholas) drew me in more.
The book's OK. Not terrible, but not great, and I wouldn't read it again.
