Comments for The Golden Stag

Rain: 01/24/05

After a week of thick morning fog and cold and clear nights (with a moon bright enough to read by), we are expecting rain. The fog is sticking around longer today and it feels thick with water. I actually thought briefly this morning that it was raining when I was getting dressed.

Golden Stag:

Yesterday I finished reading The Golden Stag by Lydia Bennett. Bennett's prose reminds me of Daphne du Maurier in the protagonist's chit chatty voice, the underlying sinisterness of past crimes and the mysterious male protagonist's heartfelt desire to redeem himself. The numerous scenes of acting reminded me of Susan Cooper's King of Shadows, minus the time travel aspect. If you happen across this book, I highly recommend it. It would make a good beach blanket read.
