Life can be extraordinary if only you believe. Ishtar Brock believes in the Mountain Spirit Rubezahl, the beet counter, ruler above and below a Silesian massif in southwestern Poland. He takes her into the realm of mysticism, enchantment, and, finally, upon her request, to Plato's Land of Shadows. Societal frailties, ghosts, witchcraft, and tingling excitement transports the listener into a world of passion and adventure.
Would you try another book from Sieglinde P. Young and/or Sieglinde P. Young?
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The most interesting aspect of this story was the locale of the Silesian Folklore.
The least interesting was the 'floating head' which crossed the line from ghostly to ghastly.
What three words best describe Sieglinde P. Young’s voice?
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Maybe take my grandchild to see the fantasy of time travel into the world of folklore.
Any additional comments?
While the storyline described a delusional daydream, the descriptive language was fascinating. It seemed that Sieglinde included all her longings, interests, insights and regrets into a fantasy story representing yearnings toward emotional fulfillment.
