Happy Poetry Month!
I‘m looking forward to reading this novel all in verse form!
Got to finish this up this morning while waiting for the kettle to boil. A beautiful read - loved the historical notes at the end.
#ReadingResolutions Day 26: Engle‘s books are always written with #MultipleNarrators such as this. A young man finding his way in the universe belonging to no one, not even himself, seeking his center; young lovers who are desperate to be with each other, unmindful of their family‘s disapproval; war and madness, pirates and conquerors.

Gorgeous, simple, lyrical. How do few words can convey so much, defies convention. My third book in verse has been as magical as the first two. Unfortunate that these stories are labeled as junior fiction. So much here for everyone.
