It's been more years than I want to admit since I read this book, but it's one that stayed with me. A short, easy read, but one that I consider a classic, and one that is an ideal choice for any tween, male or female.

I enjoyed this book because it was "quiet".

Though there was some drama, tragedy, and celebration, it was all woven into the quiet fabric of the villagers' lives. And when death came it was accepted as part of the cycle we all experience.

Reading this story was like sitting at the end of a small pier, looking out over a quiet lake as the sun begins its day, peeking through the trees and mist; bringing with it, the sounds of a waking natural world.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet moment in their literary journey :o)
