My guest blogger (my husband!!) has just finished The Land of the Silver Apples by Nancy Farmer - SO I asked him to give me a brief synopsis - he took me literally on the word "brief"!! If you want to know more - go check it out and read it!! He did reiterate that ANYTHING by Nancy Farmer is a MUST-READ!
"I have yet to find a book by Nancy Farmer that I don't like. I have read the House of the Scorpion, The Sea of Trolls and The Land of the Silver Apples.
I am looking forward to the release of The Islands of the Blessed in 2009.
In this story Jack is suspended from home after freeing a slave girl named Pega. He moves in with the
Bard, who also shares his house with Pega. Jack ends up needing to go on a mission to save his Father and reclaim Lucy, his sister.
