Five Star Review: Itsy Bitsy Book Bits:This reminds me of a beautiful fairy tale, a newer version, but still similar in reasoning.  The knight in his plaid trying his best to save the damsel who just wants to save herself.  I'm not sure that is what Amanda was going for, but I really appreciated it.  To me it was so simple and pure, so delicate but yet so strong.  I was in the field, I heard the sheep bleating and the crows calling out in warning.  I saw the plaid and I smelled the sea water.  I was able to escape to another time, another place and with people who were so well written that I feel as if I know them.  I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a reprieve from daily life and who just want to escape to simpler time.
