northern comfort

Growing up in Canada, a former British colony, tea was the cure for what ails you.  Lose your best friend?  Have a cup of tea.  Win the math prize?  Put the kettle on.  Hot drinks are soothing, especially when a snowstorm’s on its way and my throat feels kind of sore.  This morning I took comfort in a great new review of Wish over at A Chair, A Fireplace, and A Tea Cozy.  And Liz B got her copy from Susan—ever the gift-giver—but did you know that today is Susan’s birthday?  Swing by Black-eyed Susan’s to help her celebrate…

The Good: What a page turner! Genna is so engaging, and she is faced with so many challenges as she struggles to survive in the past. Having twenty first century sensibilities in the face of nineteenth century racism? “Hard” doesn’t even begin to describe it, as she tries to build a life and friendships in her new time. I don’t want to give too many of the plot points away, because seeing the obstacles Genna encounters and how she climbs over, goes around, or moves it is part of the reason this is a page turner.
