A Corner of White:The Colors of Madeleine
By Jaclyn Moriarty
Summery courtesy of Goodreads.com
Madeleine Tully lives in Cambridge, England, the World – a city of spires, Isaac Newton and Auntie’s Tea Shop.
Elliot Baranski lives in Bonfire, the Farms, the Kingdom of Cello – where seasons roam, the Butterfly Child sleeps in a glass jar, and bells warn of attacks from dangerous Colours.
They are worlds apart – until a crack opens up between them; a corner of white – the slim seam of a letter.
A mesmerising story of two worlds; the cracks between them, the science that binds them and the colours that infuse them.
This book is imaginative and original, but unfortunately its a wee bit of a struggle in places as the pace of the story is really slow moving. But please persevere with it as it is well worth the effort.
A Corner of White is a well-written book about a friendship which grows from letter exchanges and two people from two different worlds. With loveable characters and heart-warming story, A great read for those that like stories that test your imagination. 4 stars
