#onelinewednesday: The Gold-Son

Have you ever picked up a story that was so different than what you usually read, but didn’t regret a single thing?

The Gold-Son by Carrie Anne Noble was one of those books. Her book was not overly dark to say, but it had this lyrical, historical fantasy-like tone that was fascinating. Not only that, I don’t recall ever reading a book about leprechauns.

Ever.

From that view point alone, this story had me looking at my shoes from a new perspective (and shoes in general really). Were leprechauns making the shoes that I wore and loved? (I suppose I’ll never know…)

I will say that I had a slightly bitter taste in my mouth after seeing how a certain brand of cereal gave me an inaccurate representation of these interesting people. I learned so much from this story! The histories, underground world, “rituals” concerning rainbows. All of it had me glued to my seat and turning pages.

Truly, leprechauns are nothing like I thought they were, especially when you see a “real” one living in the twenty-first century.
