    1 thought on “The Mourning Ring”

    1. THE MOURNING RING by Sarah Parke is a fantastical tale of the Brontë siblings during their childhoods and how they found out they had fairy blood running through their veins. When they discover that the characters in their imaginary kingdom of Angria are in trouble, the foursome take a magical journey to save the day.This is Sarah Parke's debut novel and I can only hope that she continues down this road. The story is imaginative and well told, suitable for youngsters and adults alike--especiall [...]

    2. I was biting my nails on this one. I was not sure what Charlotte would choose family or characters. I was not sure which one I wanted her to choose. The characters were so rich, engaging, and hers/theirs. Her siblings were her blood, family, loved ones. Each set created a connection to Charlotte and throughout the read you find a reason to hold or to let-go of one or other. Charlotte’s connection to her family, well sibling was the stories she weaved and the way she shared them. This was not a [...]

    3. I received an email from Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours asking if I was interested in reviewing "The Mourning Ring" by Sarah Parke. In a previous blog post, I mentioned that last year my absolute favorite genre was historical fiction. After reading the description of this particular book, I knew that I had to review it. "The Mourning Ring" was published October 19th 2016 and is available for purchase here.Sarah Parke is a a new author for me, and upon looking up some info on her, it turns [...]

    4. Historical fiction is a favorite of mine, so it is no surprise that I enjoyed this book. It is very well written and has a nice balance of history and fantasy with an added touch of adventure to keep the reader guessing.

    5. I wasn't sure what I would think going in. Neither historical fiction nor fantasy are my favorite genres. In the end, the book developed robust characters in a complex world. It turned into a page turner. A "just one more chapter before bed" kind of story. This book presented a fun premise and developed it into a story of intrigues, plots, double-crossing, and Shakespearean style disguises. It was not simply the "kids go on a magical adventure" story you might expect from the book's description [...]

    6. Great StorytellerThis is an absorbing story with well-rounded characters and an intriguing plot. Before they wrote Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and Agnes Grey, Charlotte Bronte and her sisters and brother spent much of their childhood writing stories based on fanciful worlds they created. In The Mourning Ring the author explores the idea of what would happen if these worlds came to life and the creators had to become the saviors. While written for young adults the story will be enjoyed by reader [...]

    7. This is a wonderful story that will appeal to YA readers who enjoy fantasy, historical fiction, or adventure stories -- or all three wrapped up in one book! It's beautifully written, has strong female characters, and is filled with accurate historical details.Highly recommended for Bronte fans of all ages!

    8. What if the Bronte's were part fairy? That's what you get with The Mourning Ring. This is the kind of book that you want to devour. I wish I could have sat down with it and just read it straight through, but life didn't let me do that.Its the story of young Charlotte and her siblings and the alternate world that she's created.This is a young adult novel, but definitely one that fans of Bronte and just about anyone that loves a good story will enjoy, because its just that well written.I love what [...]

    9. 2.5 stars rounded up to 3. I didn't dislike this book, but I didn't love it either. I think the story could have done with a bit more polishing and editing. The fact that the four siblings in the book were the Bronte children was nothing more than a side note. The potential was there, but it fell a little flat.

    10. This book has received a Discovering Diamonds Review:"a great job of blending history and magic into a single compelling reality."Helen Hollickfounder #DDRevs

    11. This review was originally written for the Discovering Diamonds review site.The Mourning Ring, by Sarah Parke, is a work of historical fantasy. Authentic details from the lives of the Brontë sisters, and their brother Branwell, are blended with a magical alternate setting. But this other place is not purely imaginary: rather it is the creation of the Brontës themselves. As children, the four of them had collaborated in the creation of an imaginary world. Rather than being kept secret, we know [...]

    12. As a young woman returning from school, 16 year old Charlotte Bronte can't wait to jump back into the make believe world of Glass Town and her favorite activity to share with her siblings, storytelling. Together, the remaining Bronte siblings- Charlotte, Branwell, Anne and Emily have created the alternate world of Glass Town and keep meticulous written records of the events there. However, when a strange sleepwalking occurrence happens, a memory of Charlotte's meeting with her fairy grandfather [...]
