I've been recommending this book to kids for a few years now, so I figured I'd better read it. It was thoroughly satisfying. I liked the blend of historical fiction and fairy tale fantasy. And how very interesting to read about how horrible the Puritans were! So different from the New England history I learned as a kid! ( )

This was a lovely reading (by Juliet Stevenson) of an interesting mix of fairy tale and historical novel. A young girl with a mother of mysterious origin lives through the time of Cromwell in London. One day, she is the recipient of silver shoes, and her life changes at breakneck pace. ( )

Spellbinding. All the attention to sensory detail made the experience of reading it so immersive I finished the book in one late night. Dramatic & atmospheric, full of allusions and symbolism. Good vs. evil - the only truly complex character is Coriander's father who is a good man who makes some bad decisions. I especially loved how painlessly I actually learned a bit more about English history, both political and cultural. I'm excited to discuss this in the Children's Books group - come join us all through Oct. 2012.

ETA - turns out I wasn't actually learning very good history. See msg 13 from Abigail in this thread: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1047720?utm_content=A&utm_medium=email&a.... In fact the whole discussion is good - and I've taken a star off my rating. ( )

I like historical fiction and I picked up this book thinking that it was a story of London in the middle 1600's. Then I found out that it had won Gold in the Nestle Children's Book Prize as a children's book in 2005. It is supposed to be a fairy tale but I would put it into the category of Historical Fantasy.

The language of the book would be very challenging for a child under 13 years old for sure and I believe the book is really aimed at the late teen or even early 20's. Having said that, I decided to read the book anyway and discovered a very well written novel that grabbed my imagination immediately and I could not put it down.

Coriander is a young girl in London, the child of a mother who is a fairy and a father who is a successful London business man. The story takes place when the King Charles I is executed and England is thrown into civil war. Her pleasant life is thrown into chaos when a mysterious pair of silver slippers appear as a gift. I won't spoil the story but Coriander becomes a traveler between the real world and fairy world of magic after being trapped in a small casket by her evil stepmother and her Puritan preacher accomplice.

I think it could be a fairy tale that was read to older children as it does have such an ending, but as an older adult I enjoyed the tale very much. It was certainly deserving of its Nestle award in 2003 ( )

In loving memory of an irreplaceable friend, Maria Bjornson. The world we live in is nothing more than a mirror that reflects another world below its silvery surface, a land where time is but a small and unimportant thing, stripped of all its power. I hope to find you there.
