"The Earth Hums in B Flat" by Mari Strachan ***

  • Welsh author
  • Originally published in 2009
  • Debut novel
  • Review:  A lovely debut novel.  I imagine this book being kept on the shelf of a summer cottage for adults and youths to pick up and read.  It would be just the right tone for vacation. The perspective of a young girl who is inquisitive, intuitive, exquisitely sensitive, and who flies over her town in her sleep is a delightful one.  Gwennie is full of questions.  Some of the answers are tough to handle, but then again, so is life.  Charming and insightful.
