Steven Tryon reviewed on Oct. 4, 2017

Dusk, we say, is a magic time, as the light dims and shadows lengthen and fade.

In Argantel town and Landricourt they said similarly, but metaphor it was not. The Gloaming was when the roses grew through the walls for the making of wine and things seemed to be not as they appeared. They weren't.

Oreane finds herself mirrored onto Laendricourt, the same place she knew, except that it most certainly was not. And the roses! They were as if the Rose herself had nursed them into being.

Charlotte English' enchantments grow deeper and richer with each book, as does her delight in the telling of the tale and mine in the reading of it.

Highly recommended. Enjoy!
