Glimmer of Hope: Sarah M. Eden... This book is not your usual regency romance. I wasn't expecting the difference, but it deviated in a wonderfully well-written way with characters that will be hard to forget.
The Books of Bayern by Shannon Hale. My favorite books are Enna Burning and River Secrets, but they are all definitely worth a read! -Stefany. Link to The Goose Girl for available copies and requests: http://sherloc.imcpl.org/?itemid=|library/marc/dynix|914828
