SUMMERS AT CASTLE AUBURN

Author(s): 

Sharon Shinn has penned an intensely emotional fantasy in SUMMERS AT CASTLE AUBURN (4.5). Coriel is a free spirit, an illegitimate daughter to a noble house, content with her herbs and potions. Her world changes as royal machinations force her to see her role as political pawn even as her legitimate half-sister marries the decadent Prince Bryan whom Coriel secretly loves. An exquisitely rendered coming-of-age tale in which Ms. Shinn shines as a powerful storyteller with a depth of feeling that touches the soul. (Apr.)
