An incredible combination of magic and friendship
A Winter's Tale continues the story of Ingamald, a young woman destined to be a powerful witch in a pre-industrial world known as Hinterlund. A fearmonger in the person of Morton Winter has bought himself into power and works to control the largely illiterate populace.
His oppression is absolute as he puts a halt to learning and outlaws any who work in the arcane arts. Ingamald her magical rabblerouser friends are threatened with torture and death. She takes drastic and sometimes magical action, and through her wits and disguises plots Winter’s demise.
Second in this YA series, A Winter’s Tale explores personal and social responsibility through the strong minor characters and especially the strong female heroine. Gail, a specialist in Children’s Literature, plots another tale in this series that capers and dallies with language and detail aimed at Jr/Sr high and gifted readers.
