    1. Berlatar belakang Inggris abad pertengahan, pada masa itu masyarakat Inggris diwajibkan memeluk agama Kristen Protestan, dan mereka yang membangkang karena tetap setia terhadap agama Katolik Roma akan disebut sebagai Heretic.Pada suatu hari Elizabeth sedang pergi ke hutan untuk merawat tempat suci Perawan Maria dan Santo Jerome, kesetiaan keluarganya pada gereja Katolik membuat mereka harus membayar mahal. Untuk berdoa saja, Elizabeth harus pergi ke hutan, bersembunyi dari masyarakat yang menguc [...]


    2. Eh, aku suka buku ini. Dongengnya indah, ada sejarahnya juga. Dunia paralel digambarkan dengan sederhana juga menawan, tidak seperti beberapa buku sci-fi lain yang cenderung njelimet hehehe. Saya suka cara Sarah Singleton menjelaskan bagaimana penduduk negeri bayangan bisa hidup abadai. Mereka hidup dalam kisah yang selalu berulang sehingga tidak pernah mati. Entah mereka yang menciptakan kisah itu atau kisahlah yang memimpikan mereka.Ternyata ya, dari dulu dunia kita selalu dipenuhi orang-orang [...]


    3. Started off interestingly enough and Sarah Singleton's writing is so beautiful that I wish I could rate this one higher. Unfortunately the plot began to drag after the first few chapters and I couldn't connect with either of the two main characters. Towards the end the pace began to pick up, but the happily-ever-after relied too heavily on deus ex machina for my tastes. A disappointing read.


    4. Selalu menjadi hal yang menarik perhatian saya ketika sebuah buku diangkat dengan latar belakang sejarah. Walau cerita didalamnya hanya pengembangan fakta di masa lalu, namun memberi nilai tersendiri pada setiap babnya. Apalagi yang menjanjikan petualangan yang menegangkan . Seperti yang ditulis oleh Sarah Singleton dalam buku yang satu ini. Dengan sampul berwarna coklat dengan gam,bar yang cukup suram seperti menjadi gambaran bagaimana cerita yang ada di dalamnya.Tahun 1527, pemasalahan antara [...]


    5. Ini buku siapa ya, Mia atau Palsay?Baru pinjam seminggu lalu saat ketemu di SkyDining tapi sudah lupa siapa gerangan sang empunya buku, heheManakala membaca catatan pengarang di awal buku, saya mengira muatan historis mengenai kehidupan beragama masyarakat Inggris di abad pertengahan bakal mendominasi. Sejujurnya saya ingin tahu banyak hal yang mewarnai kondisi saat itu.Betapa kala itu di tengah masyarakat Eropa yang dicengkeram dominasi gereja Katolik, Raja Henry VIII dengan alasan pribadi bera [...]


    6. Set in the Elizabethan period yet far removed from either the royal court or the drudgery of peasant life, this features the daughter of a merchant who serves as a companion/lady in waiting for the childless wife of a noble at her country manor. It's also one of those rare books where Queen Elizabeth is the villain, as her anti-Catholic policies have led to persecution and torture of anyone suspected of aiding priests who may want to foment a revolution to take back the throne, which has put our [...]

Isabella Leland's bones have been at rest in the human world for the past three hundred years, while the rest of her has lived among the Crow People. The world in which she wakes is very different from the one Isabelle once knew.

    11. Settingnya di Inggris; tahun 1540-an. Ceritanya tentang Elizabeth yang bertemu Isabella; seorang gadis yang 'nampaknya' seusia dengannya --sekitar 12 tahun. Isabella si gadis hijau. Hijau?

Bagian manusianya yang berupa seonggok tulang, mungkin dengan sedikit kulit keriput dan rambut yang rontok, yang terduduk di tengah pohon berongga; seperti ampas teh di dalam mangkok; tubuh [...]

    13. Sudah empat tahun buku ini tidak disentuh. Waktu itu aku tertarik sama sinopsisnya, tapi seorang teman yang sudah baca bilang, "Itu bukunya orang kristen ya."
