Now In My Bookbag : The Lie Tree, by

image

What a phenomenal work! Books this exceptional are far too rare. Author Frances Hardinge has a special gift for prose.

Setting descriptions breathe life into Vane Island, from Faith’s first assessment of her new home, until the story’s last syllables are written. The characters are splendid in their complexity. This book is well thought out,  and so well written.

Hardinge outlines the mindset of the scientific naturalist, as well as the thinking of those more devoutly religious. The elegance of this story however, is its success in coloring all of the grey areas between the two. The Lie Tree is suspense and mystery, sins and absolution, self-righteousness and self-recremination.

This book is a fantastic find, one which I hope to share with as many discerning readers as possible. 5 stars
