Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Interest Age Teen Reading Age 7
Against the dramatic background of a violent storm, this story within a story simply but elegantly unfolds in carefully chosen vocabulary. As the old man at the bar tells his favourite tale of the traveller, whose fury at all he heard about the Kingdom to the West caused him to sally forth into a wild night in which he must surely have perished, another unknown traveller arrives. Who is the young man and what is his business? How the two stories are interwoven gives the story the timeless and soothing feel of a traditional story.Who is Julia Eccleshare ?

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
