Book review-A House of Light & Stone-EJ Runyon

A House of Light and StoneA House of Light and Stone by E.J. Runyon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

From the first page I was captivated by Duffy. Her voice is perfectly captured; a child’s naivety tempered by a wariness beyond her years from the hardships she experiences. This story is so beautifully written, drawing you into Duffy’s world from her perspective. After the first chapter I was hesitant about reading more, already caring for this character so much, that I was scared I would be distraught at what Duffy might have to face. However, I was compelled to follow as her many trials and adventures unfold. I am so happy I did; there is far more light than dark in this novel and by the end I felt so uplifted (though also a little sad to be leaving Duffy and wanting to know how her life progresses).
