The Ladies of Grace Adieu by Susanna Clarke
This is a book of delightful short stories all involving the world of faerie. It was beautifully written! I loved each story and was almost sorry to see them end. I picked this up as a means of introducing myself to Ms. Clarke’s writing. I am now on a search for her book Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. These stories should be a must read for anyone who enjoys faerie. I’ll leave you with a quote from the book.
“. . . magic belongs as much to the heart as to the head and everything which is done, should be done from love or joy or righteous anger.”
