A blog about beautiful fiction — mostly historical fiction, also contemporary fiction. I only blog about books I love. About 1-2 books/month. Enchanted Prose was launched a year ago.
I’m often disappointed with books that get a lot of publicity and hype and appear on bestseller lists. Instead, I tend to rave about books that never seem to see the light of bestseller lists. If the prose is not beautifully written with words that for some reason move me, then I’m not likely to read or finish the book. I tend to be drawn to artists, emotional/historical time periods, UK authors, and novels that place you in stimulating cities or beautiful landscapes. When an author’s words let me feel the spirit of a place and get to know characters that inhabit them, these escapes truly enrich my life so that I feel a great gratitude to them. Enchanted Prose is my way of thanking these authors, by sharing with you some beautiful fiction I’ve discovered, and telling you why I think you too might fall in love with a special book.
