Do you ever have a time when you want a new book to read, but you just don’t know what you want? I found this book during one of those searches. Any member of our local public library can use their library card number to access thousands of online books, both new and old. C & I both love to do this and I know I have had access to books that I wouldn’t have otherwise by doing this. There were a couple of books that I was interested in, but they weren’t available at the time.
While browsing, I found The Winter Prince by Elizabeth Wein. Here is the first line:
“He sat on the floor before the hearth with his knees against his chin, the flames at his back, and warily watched his father’s face.”
This is a story of King Arthur’s children and it actually a young adult novel. If you read my blog, you will know that I am a huge fan of historical fiction, but this wasn’t my favorite. It wasn’t a terrible book, but I got a little bored while reading it. AND, if it’s supposed to be a YA novel, there are some very adult themes in this book. Parents, take note that you may want to review this book first to make sure it is appropriate for your child.
