The Springsweet By Saundra Mitchell, The Springsweet Saundra Mitchell Dec , The Springsweet has some gothic overtones, but they are subtle and this is not what I would deem a gothic romance Theo and Zora meet in a graveyard with none other than Edgar Allen Poe The lovelorn, grieving young woman and supernatural aspects also would lead you to think this is a traditional, gothic romance, but the setting itself does not lend to a traditional gothic romance. The Springsweet The Vespertine, by Saundra Mitchell Jan , The Springsweet is a companion novel to The Vespertine but the story has a different feel to it partly due to the setting and partly due to the protagonist Zora I think this is a much thoughtful book and I actually prefer it to The Vespertine.

    6. It is no secret that I love Saundra Mitchell.Her prose is beautiful but rather spare much like the landscape she is writing about but her skill is such that it doesn t take a lot of words to conjure a rich story She is rather like Zora, a word sweet summoning a story that is clear and simple with no frippery The characters use period language and sentence construction which added to the authenticity of the book, but contemporary readers won t balk at this at times formal or unfamiliar manner of [...]

    7. The Springsweet is a young adult historical fantasy set in the late nineteenth century, mainly in the Oklahoma Territory It s also a sequel to Saundra Mitchell s 2011 novel The Vespertine, though I didn t realize that when I ordered it So the caveat to my review is that I read The Springsweet without that background How does it hold up on its own Quite well, actually.The heroine is Zora Stewart, a secondary character from The Vespertine, whose fianc died tragically a year ago Zora s mother and f [...]

    9. After having read and liked the previous book in the series, The Vespertine, I was pretty happy to be able to get my hands on this book Many of you coming into this book will be familiar with Mitchell s style, but for those of you who aren t I do have to warn you that the magic in this story will not be as heavily played up as it usually is in some of the other YA books out there It s of a secondary plot element than a major one, although it does feature heavily in the story First let me talk a [...]

    10. 3.5 StarsIn an attempt to escape a wounded heart, Zora Stewart packs a bag and heads West Robbery, rescue and the occasional tumbleweed follow Being a fan of the Vespertine inspired me to pick up the companion novel, The Springsweet The setting shifts from Balit to the hardships of prairie life along the great frontier Because of the setting, the book has a western country feel and for those readers who enjoy American settler stories, The Springsweet will be a pleasurable and clean read It s app [...]

    11. Saundra Mitchell is a master of setting All of her books have had a vivid and palpable feel to them, and this book is no exception I could taste the dust of the road, smell the grass on the prairie, feel the water between my toes, etc Whenever I want to feel like I m in another world, I pick up one of Saundra s books.Zora is a great character Her grief is tangible and drives her to do selfish things because she can t see beyond it That rang true to me Desperation also drove her to find her inner [...]

    12. The Springsweet is a companion novel to The Vespertine but the story has a different feel to it partly due to the setting and partly due to the protagonist Zora I think this is a much thoughtful book and I actually prefer it to The Vespertine Zora struggles with grief and guilt but she is also a determined and hardworking girl which I found admirable Even though an Oklahoma soddy is a far cry from what she is used to, she pitches in and does her best to not be a burden to her aunt The romance i [...]

    13. I really enjoyed this book my only problem was it was too short I could have kept reading a lot longer This book is a sequel but I didn t know that before I picked it up The beginning was a little like starting a story all ready in progress, but I picked up very quickly on what was going on But I will say after reading this I will go back and read the first book, I liked the writing so much This book has three big pluses for me love, magic and the old west 3 things I love to read about and I got [...]

    14. Saundra Mitchell has an incredible knack for rendering vivid settings It s my favorite thing about all three of her books I felt like I was right in dusty, wild Oklahoma along with Zora and wished I were there for the trysts at the stream with Emerson I love how Zora grows she starts out the book heartbroken, mourning her fiance, and grows into a strong, stubborn woman ready to move on, find her own destiny, and fall in love despite past heartbreak There s a bit of a love triangle, but it s solv [...]

    15. Though I haven t had the joy of reading The Vespertine I was instantly grabbed by the story of The SpringSweet The narrative style was simple in an elegant way that didn t hold anything back, revealing truths and moments with an unflinching clarity and endearing honesty Zora s character, though at first a little out of touch with the consequences of her decisions, goes through a stunning transition from a young woman lost to herself to a strong character who is willing to step out of the roles s [...]

    17. Another book that develops at a slow burn good description of depression at the start Slow romance a bit modern in take, but okay Still enjoyable.

    18. Last year, I bought Saundra Mitchell s The Vespertine because I thought it had a pretty cover and I m shallow like that Of course, as I said in my review at the time, I ended up really liking it, in large part because of the characters When I found out we d get sequels companion novels with of these characters, I was pretty excited and so when I got an ARC of The Springsweet, I was even stoked As I ve said a million times on tis blog, I m a sucker for historical fiction, and anything to do wit [...]

    19. Hope springs eternal.Mourning the death of her beloved, Zora Stewart decided she needed to escape What better way to forget about the tragedies in her life but to occupy herself with back breaking labour Ruined in Balti by her own devices, her mother shipped her off to a stead in Oklahoma where farming life flounders due to the scarcity of water Little did she know, within her lies the ability to call on its sources But as soon as she availed herself of the remuneration for being springsweet , g [...]

    20. Although Amelia s fire was enjoyable, I have to say, I was elated to find out The Springsweet was entirely about Zora I adored Zora, and her ending was not one I wanted to leave her with, so it was entirely satisfying to find her in the very first pages, with no preambles.Mrs Stewart, sadly, wasn t in this one as much However, she s in the beginning and continues on just as I expect, in the most satisfying combination of proper mom for the time period, and one who understands the confines of the [...]

    21. Let me just start by saying that I enjoyed The Springsweet a lot than I did The Vespertine It was much easier to follow, and I actually enjoyed the setting It doesn t take place very long at all after The Vespertine ended, but it s completely different Saundra really has a talent for making her writing fit the period, and areas she is trying to write about As you can probably gather, The Springsweet is the companion novel to The Vespertine in which you follow along with Zora on her journey wes [...]

    25. Read reviews and follow discussions atOnce Upon a Prologue It s no secret that Saundra Mitchell s Gothic novel, The Vespertine was one of my favorite novels of 2011 I m a romantic at heart, and drawn to all kinds of anachronisms, and to me, The Vespertine was a book that, wonderfully, and amazingly, just didn t fit in, didn t quite belong amidst all the other young adult books I was reading, and that s a huge part of why I loved Saundra s book and her ethereal writing style quite so much I ve r [...]

    26. The Vespertine was a very unsuspecting book, I read it with no expectation and I was as mesmerized by the story as Amelia was by her visions The ending was so sad, but never rushed or desperate So I was thrilled to know that it was part of a serious It could have been fine, great even as a standalone book, it just would have been sad and maybe a bit depressing, but I would have recommended it Knowing that it would be part of a series, I was excited, but a bit nervous, because Amelia didn t have [...]

    27. I almost think I liked this book better than The Vespertine But only almost The Springsweet is a must read book if you have read The Vespertine Although it would be great even if you haven t This book is even shorter than the first one and although I wished to much it had been longer I loved it the way it is It has perfect writing, perfect characters, perfect plot and an perfect ending Although a bit evil.This book starts about a year after The Vespertine ended This is Zora s story So it has bee [...]

    28. I really liked The Vespertine, so I was nervous when I realized this book was about Zora Zora kind of broke my heart in the last book, and I was afraid it was maybe too soon for me to be ready to see her again that she wasn t ready to face life yet But I was wrong I think one of the things that made me like The Springsweet so much was Zora s strength From the get go, she knows what she doesn t want She knows what she will refuse to allow to happen to her, and she takes her fate into her own hand [...]

You do NOT have to have read The Vespertine to read, understand, and enjoy The Springsweet.At a Glance The Springsweet was a fantastic historical fiction novel, full of rich descriptions of the Old West, and loaded with hardships, learning, and love Fans of The Vespertine will find something familiar, but altogether new in The Springsweet I thoroughly enjoyed it The Wild West I found this book to be such a good read As Zora leaves her comfortable home in Balti and moves out to the new frontier i [...]
