Wolf Girl

I'm sure it was Carla, via her review, who brought Wolf Girl by Theresa Tomlinson to my notice. I got it out of the library and have just finished reading it. I really enjoyed this 7th century set story. It's a children's book and is written in a very clear, direct manner. There was little in the way of material culture gaffs for me to pick up on, which fostered a general trust of the author. The story was deeply rooted in its time on several points, and it just feels right. From the author's website I learnt that it's the first part of a trilogy. I will keep my eyes opened for the sequels as I'm intrigued to see if Tomlinson can keep up the standards she has so ably set. But also, I wouldn't be at all miffed if I managed to produce a book like Wolf Girl at some point, so it's worth my while studying Tomlinson's style.

It might be a bit "modern" for you, but a series I absolutely adore is the Morland Dynasty from Cynthia Harrod Eagles. I've just introduced it to my bloke's mother, and she loves it too, but it does start with the Plantage ... um ... Plantagenants ...ooh-er ... the ones wot were before the Tudors ... :o)
