F.H.Burnett “A Little Princess”

It is absolutely wonderful story and I enjoyed it. ...this book is one of those books that touches the little child in all of us. It is not a happy fairytale. There are some real moments of sadness. I love this book because it tells that no matter who you are, or where you come from, you are who you want to be, no matter what anyone might say to you. I always admired Sara’s imagination and courage, her inner integrity and strength of will. Sara maintains the inner nobility and generous spirit of a "real" princess.
Loved this book!!!!

Emily Bronte "Wuthering Heights "

"Wuthering Heights" is the only novel of Emily Bronte. She died at the age of thirty, a year after publication of her novel. She describes the life of Heathcliff, a mysterious gypsy-like person, from childhood (about seven years old) to his death in his late thirties. Heathcliff rises in his adopted family and then is reduced to the status of a servant, running away when the young woman he loves decides to marry another. He returns late r, rich and educated and sets about gaining his revenge on the two families that he believed ruined his life.
Unique, mystical novel, which has become a classic of English literature!
An absolutely must-read novel!

Daphne DuMaurier "Rebecca"

"Rebecca" is definitely on my list of best written books. I believe there is a book for all times...
"Rebecca" is a masterpiece of the genre, and my favorite of Du Maurier's fiction. I also liked the story a lot -A naive young woman meets and marries a wealthy widower, Maxim de Winter, who owns an old English estate called Manderley.
The young bride has a difficult time adjusting to life at Manderley. She began her search for the real fate of the first Mrs. de Winter, the beautiful Rebecca, whose presence is still felt strongly by the characters in the novel.
DuMaurier has written a dark, gripping tale with atmosphere of suspicion, fear and secrets.
Great writing and reading!

Troon Harrison "Tales of Terre:The Separated"

"The Separated " is a wonderful fantasy adventure. Harrison has created a fantastic world full of creatures of all kinds, from Mara Folk to Sea Horses and Sea Witches. Thet all are here to be discovered by readers.
Three sixteen-year-olds must discover their own strength and their magical abilities in time to win the battle for their land.
"The Separated" is an exciting story for fans of fantasy tales. I'm looking forward to any future story of the series "Tales of Terre."

Marguerite Henry "King of the Wind"

King of the Wind is a novel by Marguerite Henry that won the Newbery Medal for excellence in American children's literature in 1949.
King of the Wind is the story about the a young, mute horseboy named Agba who works for the sultan of Morocco. He travels to France with a gift for Louis XV. The gift is a horse named King of the Wind who is also known as Sham. Sham and Agba run into many adventures and find themselves living with many different owners and in many different situations.
I absolutely loved it and I would recommend it to anyone who loves horse stories.
