Flower of the Gorse

by Louis Tracy

Pretty darn good book. A bit too Victorian and idealistic, perhaps, and with one huge flaming coincidence but with good characters and some splendid sailing. And a splendid heroine.

Makes me want to visit Brittany, though not enough to learn French.

The Gold of Fairnilee

by Andrew Lang

A worthwhile fairytale or child's fantasy, most suitable for early teens or pre-teens.

Harding's Luck

by E. Nesbit

A rather charming tale, as Nesbit's generally are. Goes along well most of the way until the author feels the need to "explain" the magic, which might have better been left a mystery.

Hell Is Coming

by N.P. Martin

I, on the other hand, soon after beginning felt like throwing it against the wall, and would have if it hadn't been on my Nook.

Someone greatly needs a writing coach and a copy editor.

If I bothered with stars this would rate a two but I'd give it a one for excessive foul language.
