Seriously just one of the best works of historical fiction I have ever read.
Bischof is a master Put this on your to read list, yes, but mostly put it on your must BUY list because you will want to visit Charlie and Ella again and again.
Bischof is the type of writer that has a voice so uniquely and poignantly her own that you couldn t compare or emulate it if you tried.
I could cry I don t know when I ve last read something so achingly beautiful Is it possible to rate Joanne Bischof s books less than five stars I don t know, because so far, I haven t been able to She writes with such heart and depth The Lady and the Lionheart was soul touching, intriguing, painful, and utterly lovely I can t even describe how I felt about that ending it was perfection In fact, I was certain I was getting a glimpse of heaven on earth with just a sprinkle of nostalgia.
Ella was darling Charlie was wonderful Holland was adorable The story was crushing pain, thrilling hope, and raw beauty entwined together all set against the magical background of the early 1900s circus.
The setting was intriguing, with gypsies, lions, circus tents, mystery, and not to mention, the dashing lion trainer with a twinkle i Re read July 2018 Have you ever met a book that changed you and your outlook on life One that resonated with you, moved you to the point of tears, and spoke truth to your soul This is that kind of book.
I have no sufficient words to review this all I have to say is that I needed to reread this book right now.
It came at the perfect time in my life.
This book has changed the way I view life and I m so, so grateful for it The characters and themes live on long after the final page is turned.
Thank you, Joanne Bischof, for The Lady and the Lionheart There s a girl named Mary who really needed to read it today 3 OKAY SO BASICALLY I ADORED IT And every single Joanne Bischof book I ve read has ended up on my favorites shelf immediately so what does that tell you Will hopefully review this beautiful book if I can find the words to do it justice But in case you re wonderingREAD ITTTT 5 stars Well, I really did want to give it five stars, because the characters are so vivid and the descriptions so lush the incredible amount of non traditionally formatted sentences really had my brain overworked So many misplaced modifiers, so many verbs before subjects, so many change of tense in the middle of the sentence nearly one per page on average left my brain reeling to interpret the meaning and actually made me lay the book aside several times Otherwise, I did find the writing to be very lyrical and even poetic.
Charlie and Ella and Holland all get instant five stars Wow, what Charlie did when he took in Hollandgracious, who couldn t love him for that There were so many favorite scenes that I can t list them all.
