I won a copy of Elizabeth's book JANE IN WINTER not long ago. It is "A Traditional Tale of Magic and Enchantment" of "a young girl's quest to set the world to rights and bring happiness to a very tragic family."
Jane has quite and adventure. She travels underwater and finds a magnificent palace. She goes on a quest to rescue May from the evils of Queen Ida. The story also contains wonderful details of life in England in the 1950's. I sympathized with Jane having to deal with a big brother and his friends. They offered to let her play Risk with them-- just this once. "only so you could wipe me off the face of the earth," said Jane. She hated it when people ganged up on her and her last soldier fell in Kamchatca or somewhere weird like that. I've died in Risk's Kamchatca more than once myself.
Elizabeth is putting together a spooky Halloween story on her blog, The World Examining Works. I'm excited to see the next installment.
Thanks, Elizabeth, for the fine children's book!
