Very amusing through out as Birdy deals with everything from the horrors of needlework to suitors of her father's choice to saving dancing bears. What I also liked was the way Birdy's faith life was just a natural fact of life - from her fascination with the saints and their days and their exploits was a stitch. And her pondering the eternal questions of evil and pain, etc., are the things we all, particularly young people, think about. Ex: Why didn't Jesus make a plant that could heal lepers instead of just healing the one? Then we could still use that plant to heal lepers now. Or how, just as the best cider has a few rotten apples in it, maybe the world is the same way - life wouldn't have sweetness without the sour. I'm sure I'd have loved this book as a kid, had I read it then.
Had avoided this trilogy forever after having stalled in this book as a kid. I'd read The Hobbit, make a running start, and then get stopped dead somewhere in the first hundred pages of The Fellowship of the Ring. This time, though, that wasn't even an issue. It reads quite beautifully, and the cliffhangers between the six individual books that make up the trilogy work very well. I sped through the three volumes of The Lord of the Rings this time and couldn't figure out why it had taken me so damn long to do so.
