Five Quarters of the Orange by Joanne Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Harris's story was surprisingly sweet and her prose was like magic. At first, I didn't know if I would like her style. I have gotten sick of the flashback set up where the reader meets the character as an aged soul who is reflecting on her childhood. But, Harris does this with such care. She truly knows how to grip the reader's attention and heighten their curiosity.
This book is one about what it means to be brave, to keep secrets and the danger of being charmed by the snake. I will definitely be reading more from Joanne Harris.
