A Wish Made of Glass Review

By Brent King On August 6, 2015 Under Books, Reviews

AWishMadeofGlassFinalThough cloaked in a fey world, the vivid images in Ashlee’s story have wonderful overtones of a mysterious God and a heaven about which we know very little. Another reviewer, Deborah O’Carroll, expressed this when she said, “You feel in the end a little as if there are hinted truths threaded through beneath the surface of the tale that you can not quite grasp. At least, that is how I felt. There is something deeper, elusive, and you feel that maybe one day you will understand it, even if you do not right now.”

For me, her book had a “Till We Have Faces” feel to it, with variations on the rich symbolism that CS Lewis brings us in that favorite tale.

Her prose is very evocative. In some places it is downright thrilling, even…stunning. Her writing shines most in her ability to paint her story world with magic.

For Ashlee’s protagonist, Izzy, life is hard. All of us can relate, but particularly those who have been dealt a bad hand in life. These will especially love this book.

Ashlee’s first book, The Word Changers, didn’t disappoint and neither does this one. Come. Enter her delightful fairy world and experience the wonder of Cinderella in a whole new way. You’ll be glad you did.
