Yes, it was a thoughtful story with great characters and an interesting plot.
How it went back in time and wove the current lives with the past.
She was very believable and did a great job changing character.
The plight of the mother trying to keep her teenage daughter happy and safe and free of the mistakes she made when she was young.
Yes, I would recommend Arcadia Falls to a friend! I'm particularly interested in faery tale renditions and love the variety of possible interpretations of the Changeling story. Arcadia Falls is an uncomplicated story about complicated issues and the layers of sub-stories effectively highlight some social issues as well, in a non-judgemental way. Even more, it's a sweet story and a lovely read. Descriptions are wonderful.
enjoyable, light, unique
not the EDGE persay however i was interested especialy wiht the flip story about the past with Lily Eberhardt
hmm the mom i think otherwise Lily Eberhardt

Try it you might like it i was enthralled but i did enjoy it.
The melding of the past and the present, with a mystery for both then and now, the story within a story.
Yes - especially to someone who finds books hard to get through. Fast paced story that doesn't linger overly long and get boring.
Love the narrator's accents, I've never spent much time with people from the East Coast so the accents were a great way to pull me into the location.
Laughed often at the quirky character observations, and the way the narrator voiced the teenagers.
Felt some of the artistic descriptions were a bit cliche at times, but not enough to bring down my rating. You can only describe art and it's form in so many ways.
I liked this book. The synopsis is a little off base I think personally, but I very much enjoyed the weaving of fairytales & mystery.
Say something about yourself!
Descriptively flat and quite predictable I could have rated it a 3 but the reader (very nasal at times) made the decision for me. I would recommend listening to the preview before deciding to purchase.
I'm a bibliophile since early childhood. Love speculative fiction, odd premises, mystery novels that teach about different places and times.
There is a bit of the obvious in this book, but the descriptions of what a woman artist does and chooses made this totally worth the trouble. You can hear the plot hit 3 pages ahead, but the images of the place and people are worthy.
