Review: A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly


My rating: 4 stars
I really, really enjoyed this book. It's just fantastic! I loved Mattie who I felt was such an interesting and multi-faceted character. All of the characters were fantastic and just came alive for me. Weaver, Minnie, Miss Wilcox and each of Mattie's siblings came to life through Donnelly's words. I think the story was beautifully written and the descriptions in the book made me feel like I was there, in that time and place. It was fantastic! What a fantastic read! I cannot recommend this one enough!
