(Yes, I know this is one day late … yesterday the Internet broke and refused to let me post.)
I was introduced to the work of Anne Elisabeth Stengl when I read her novel Veiled Rose last year alongside many other recent works of Christian fantasy. Veiled Rose was a standout: beautifully written, with excellent characterization, an intriguing plot, and the kind of atmosphere that makes classics. Stengl is quite a young writer but is already making a name for herself: two of the previous books in the Tales of Goldstone Wood series won Christy Awards, including Veiled Rose.
So it’s with pleasure that I introduce this month’s CSFF tour title: Starflower by Anne Elisabeth Stengl. The latest of the Tales of Goldstone Wood, this one takes place in a much earlier period chronologically and displays the same mix of classic fairy tale and real-world depth that have marked the author’s other work.
