What Laura's reading

Hi all,
Okay, for this week I finished the Delany book and it's a great spooky Halloween book. No blood, guts and gore, but lots of things that go bump in the night. I've finished Meg Tilly's book Porcupine and I liked it. The plot is interesting, holds some ambiguity, and has a good metaphor at the very end. The last kid's book I read was a recomendation from Gwen called Far Traveler by Tingle. It's very accurate historical fiction in the era of Edward I of England. Aethwyn is the shy daughter of a powerful lady who can't fill the shoes that her mother left behind. In the course of the story, Aethwyn changes and matures, but stays true to the historical record. A good book to read with your children. I've also read some more Carol Berg and am continuing to enjoy her plot lines and characters. Toby Bishop, Airs Beneath the Moon, is a perfect book for those who love the idea of flying horses. If you like Lightening Daughter by Mary Herbert from a number of years ago, I think that you'll like Toby Bishop. Th-Th-That's all folks. More to come later - Laura
