The path to a great story
The Curse of Chalion, by Lois McMaster Bujold, starts with a former soldier returning to his childhood home. Where is he coming from? We don’t know. Why is he in this unfortunate state? We don’t know. Nevertheless, just follow him. Follow him back to his childhood home; follow him as he becomes a tutor to a princess; follow him into the palace; and before you know it, you will find that you have followed him into your heart.
Why I like this book- This is a very intricately woven story. It’s heartwarming. It takes the finger of God to be able to write stories where everything falls into place. This story does just that.
What I don’t like– I have no criticisms.
