There’s a dedication in the front flap: You don’t need to give a fig about selkies at all. This book fits firmly in the realm of Thing That Are Catnip To Me, from the detailed, monnica depictions of early feudal Cornwall the historical accuracy of which I am entirely unfamiliar with to the well-rounded cast of ladies.

Juniper (Doran, #2) by Monica Furlong

After suffering a bit from book ADD you know, you pick book after book from your shelf and nothing is quite right I figured the safest path for reading satisfaction was to pick up an old monca.

Wise Child

In this book, Wise Child finds herself living with the compassionate Juniper who treats the ailments of people in a Scottish village even though they look at her with suspicion an I love this book.

Wise Child (Doran, #1) by Monica Furlong

This is a lost treasure of fantasy young adult literature. The main themes seem to be overlooked when they most matter, and the climax leaves something to be desired. With no one to turn to after her grandmother dies, she becomes the ward of the rumored witch Juniper. Which is a bit odd, because there is a lot of real danger from other people in the book, there’s an evil witch and a malevolent priest, and Wise Child works her way through a lot of distressing emotions.

Monica Furlong writes childhood emotions that ring true.
