This book has a vivid atmosphere (a rainy Yorkshire moor, beautiful language, and one of my favorite characters in classic literature (Dickon!). And, provided you can ignore the imperialist bits, this story still has a meaningful message for children and adults today.

The Lost Queen, Volume 1

Signe Pike

$27.99 $25.19

The Mists of Avalon for a new generation; great for fans of Outlander, Camelot, and Game of Thrones. The Lost Queen centers around Languoreth, queen of sixth-century Strathclyde, about whom little is known. She was the twin sister of Lailoken, one of the figures who inspired the legend of Merlin. Languoreth finds herself in the midst of a growing struggle between Druids and Christians, warring tribes, and political enemies. This book delivers a rich, decades-long political drama populated by compelling, flawed characters.

The Clergyman's Wife: A Pride & Prejudice Novel

Molly Greeley

$15.99 $14.71

Charlotte Lucas is sensible, not sentimental; unlike Elizabeth, she finds it possible to tolerate Mr. Collins's foibles with a smile. Depending on the adaptation/retelling/fan fiction, we are led to believe that Charlotte is either miserable or resigned, but certainly not happy. 'The Clergyman's Wife' gives her probably the most realistic attitude: sometimes embarrassed, sometimes irritated, but also sometimes content, sometimes gratified. It allows her to form her own opinions of her surroundings and connections without imposing Elizabeth's feelings at the front of our minds. This was a lovely, quick read that I happily devoured all at once. It's a picture of a short time in Charlotte Collins's life, treating her story sensitively and believably while inventing lovable, deeply human original characters. The book left me feeling wistful, but with a better understanding and respect for this classic character.
