The Wind Off the Small Isles

The Wind off the Small Isles

The Wind off the Small Isles by Mary Stewart

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I picked this book up at a book fair (back when it was hard to find) and I’m glad to have finally read it.

Perdita and her employer, (writer Cora Gresham’s) adventures in Lanzarote may start slowly, but the story really picks up from when Michael enters the story. This will seem a bit of a contradiction in terms as Michael doesn’t have much in the way of personality. But Perdita is a resourceful, brave heroine and Stewart writes so vividly about Lanzerote.

The book cover by Laurence Irving on my edition may look unattractive at first, but it grew on me as the story progressed and All Became Clear. Let’s just say it is very appropriate for the book.

The charming illustrations inside are also by Irving.

Recommended for the Stewart completists.…
