This Newbery Award winning book really captured my attention It is about the half fairy Mol who doesn t know she s half human until she is unable to become invisible in front of a human and he ends up almost catching her and endangering the other fairies or Folk as they call themselves They have a strange way of handling emotions they aren t affected the same as humans and don t have the same morality or even the same way of living within time so they have no ualms about casting her out switching her with a nearby un Baptized baby named Saaski She then is raised as Saaski having had her heart broken by the exile and her memory drowned in wanting to move on She knows she is strange for a human but doesn t know why or why people seem to look at her strangely and call her changeling The book is all about her trying to find her identity and how to be accepted and where she belongs This very much appeals to me because the books I write involve a character who doesn t uite know if she is human either and has similar problems fitting in Well that and I like stories about fairies Besides the subject matter the book is very well written and has a sort of old timey feel about it without sounding forced It s a very enjoyable read even for adults East Goes West: The Making of an Oriental Yankee people seem to look at her strangely and call her changeling The book is all about her trying to find her identity and how to be accepted and where she belongs This very much appeals to me because the books I write involve a character who doesn t uite know if she is human either and has similar Runaway Hollywood problems fitting in Well that and I like stories about fairies Besides the subject matter the book is very well written and has a sort of old timey feel about it without sounding forced It s a very enjoyable read even for adults

Eloise Jarvis McGraw Ù 9 Free read characters ☆ The Moorchild 109 Ge But so do emotions from her human side and she begins to realize the terrible wrong the Folk have done to the humans she calls Da and Mumma She is determined to restore their child to them even if it means a dangerous return to the world that has already rejected her once. This is one of those books I never knew existed until I just came across it randomly The plot looked interesting so I thought I might as well see what it was like Essentially it s about a child who actually is a changeling left with humans by the moorfolk because she had a human fatherUsually understatement is a good thing but I feel like this book was too understated The premise was good but there just wasn t a whole lot of drama or build up For a strange child Saaski seemed almost boring at times I liked the first chapter the best because you just don t know if Saaski is really unnatural or if superstition and prejudice is just taking its tole The plot follows a pretty expected route and I actually expected the ending to be dramatic than it was Slight spoiler One human stays in the mound while another escapes It would have been satisfying to have a willing life for life exchange instead of an accident I would still recommend the book since there isn t really anything badly done about it I just feel like it could have been better stranger and surprising I might actually give The Moorchild stars because of the way the ending affected me There is something very wistful in the way the human child turns from Saaski her real rescuer which shows that Saaski will never be accepted no matter how heroic she becomes And I like the mysteriousness of the ending with Saaski s human parents and their unexpected nostalgia for their strange child The music over the moors adds a sense of longing which is what fairies and humans are all abouteditOn reading the book for the second time I gave it another star Sure the plot drags a bit in the middle where it s just a series of everyday encounters and then goes a bit too uickly near the end There might have been made of Saaski s interactions with the other villagers A few times there s telling not showing on the part of the authorBut I really like how effortlessly the Scottish feel is worked into the dialog and the setting You never forget you re reading a folktale and it doesn t seem forced at all I like the delicacy McGraw uses portraying characters such as Anwara Yanno and Old Bess You can really understand where they re coming fromAnd of course I m a sucker for anything with tropes from old folk tales The description of the Moundand the glamor and the superstitions is all excellent I particularly like the idea of seeing false with one eye and true with the other The world feels very real without being bogged down in details which series such as Harry Potter can be prone toSo Moorchild isn t like those books that are the next big thing but it is one you can read again and wonder about whether we ever can escape our fate
