Widdershins - Charles de Lint Charming and delightful are two adjectives easily used to describe Widdershins by the always excellent Charles de Lint. That is not to say it is without darker moments, full of controversial and disturbing contents. The best thing about de Lint is that he handles such subject matter delicately; enough to let you know why and how someone has/is suffering but not enough to make you uncomfortable or nauseous. Jilly Coppercorn returns, with her usual gang of misfits and wonders of humankind. Another story of her redemption and trials with her brother Del from her early childhood, Widdershins deals with some of the same content as The Onion Girl, but this novel is more about Jilly and Geordie, than just the Onion Girl herself. Familiar faces from previous novels make appearances, as well as new characters sure to surface later on. Sad, lovely, charming, engaging, impossible-to-put-down, and worth re-reading is exactly how I feel about almost all of de Lint's work and this is no exception.More of my reviews here: http://bibliophileanonymous.blogspot.com/
