Friday Finds, 30 Jan

Friday Finds is a weekly event hosted by Should Be Reading.


This week’s find:
I found a gem of a book at the teen section of the bookstore last week. Gatty's Tale is about a field girl called Gatty, a young heroine who lives in poverty and hardship. Set in the medieval world in the year 1203, the story follows through the travels and adventures of the young and feisty girl from Europe to Jerusalem. For more information on the author, who is also a prize winner for children’s books please visit Kevin Crossley-Holland’s website.
Birds without Wings is a novel by Louis de Bernieres about a tragic love story of a Christian girl and a Muslim boy. The book's underlying theme apparently revolves around religious intolerance and over-zealous nationalism and the war that ensues because of these factors. For reviews on the book, please visit Reviews of BooksLouis de Bernières.

Have a good weekend y’all, xox.
