The Folk Keeper (Jean Karl Books) - Franny Billingsley This is a wonderful book. Normally I dislike books told through letters and journals, as by design the action is taking place before or after the present writing. However, Corin's journal and experiences paint the world around her, her blindspots and insights as important as the events she writes about. Having the story told through her written thoughts, rather than an omniscient perspective in her head, was a critical component that made this book all the more effective. Reading THE FOLK KEEPER felt like nothing so much as a treasure hunt, gathering pieces of Corin and fitting them together to form a whole. Though Billingsley has created a startlingly creative world, she manages to keep it grounded and explainable in a way that makes it all the more fantastic. A wonderful fairy tale, I can’t wait to read more by this author.
