    1. Every fall and spring, Aurelius Harrow comes to the mountain of Morven where his brother-in-law Freydolf is Keeper. He brings food and supplies, trades uncut stone for Freydolf's masterpieces, and provides some much-needed company. But this year is different. This year, Aurelius is going to be staying for a while.This book continues a few years after Meadowsweet, with Tupper a little more grown up and a lot more comfortable in his role. Tupper continues to open up Morven in surprising ways, as a [...]

    2. This book is about a Pred (a mythical race) named Freydolf and his servant named Tupper. Tupper is a Flox (another mythical race), and Flox are normally quite afraid of the Pred. But when Freydolf wanted the young boy to become his servant, Tupper obliged.But it had been quite a while since all that had happened. Tupper is now thirteen, and he is excited when Freydolf’s brother-in-law, the merchant Aurelius Harrow, comes to visit. And he brings exciting newsAurelius’s voice dropped to a whis [...]

    3. You might think a story about statues who come to life would be frightening and morbid with people being tossed about like rag dolls until crushed. But when I finished reading Harrow, I was left amid a cloud of warmth and delight.Milbrandt expands her cast of intriguing and engaging characters ~ stone and otherwise. She tells a lovely tale in which characters face challenges from prejudices, peas, and powerful adversaries and grow their talents, courage, faithfulness. I’m absolutely crazy abou [...]

    4. Harrow by C. J. Milbrandt is the second book in the Galleries of Stone trilogy, and picks up a few years after the events of Meadowsweet.Freydolf and Tupper's world continues to expand as new characters find their way to the magical mountain that they call home. The story is heavily character-driven, showcasing Milbrandt's ability to bring characters to life before your eyes. Hints of faraway places, glimpses of magic, and enough mystery to keep you wondering what's going to happen next are care [...]

    5. This is a wonderful book!Seriously, if you need a feel good book, one that will just make you smile, this is the book (and it's predecessor "Meadowsweet"). This is great for readers of any age. It would make a really good family read. The characters are so unique and their interactions are really fun. (I think I just might have a mad crush on Harrow himself and I adore Tupper!) Love the setting (drools) I could so live there!

    6. Everything is changing and it is good. Little ones grow up. Strangers grow into new friends. Family grows tired of distance and restraint. Love, wonder, and laughter grow in all who are fortunate enough to be welcomed onto the Moonlit Mountain.
