I am so sad as I have now read all of Allen’s books. It’s been a long time since I have been this captured by an author. Her novels are engrossing. The magical aspects force me to finish a book in one sitting, failing to look up from the page, which Chris says is going to ruin my eyesight. I suppose I have to admit I am also a sucker for the cheesy romances embedded into all her books. I especially love how her stories weave in the powers of plants. Do violets really induce calm? Can snapdragons ward off the undue influence of others? What about anise hyssop, can it ease frustration and confusion? I would like to believe this is true. Maybe in my next life I’ll pursue eastern medicine or become a holistic apothecary.
