Review: 2020.287 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s a very touching story of an old woman who’d lost so much getting a special gift from the world of faery. And it’s fitting that she’s rewarded for her kindness, even if she apparently was partly the cause of the problem.

Con: Lucy had lost everyone in the world who loved her. What she needed the most was companionship. I’m not sure the fairy’s gift to her met that need. And fairy food is supposed to trap you in their world forever, not in ours!
