As a writer of middle-grade literature, I’m constantly browsing Amazon, Goodreads, and BookBub for new books to discover and read. This morning, I happened upon The Hidden Treasure of Glaston by Eleanore M. Jewett on Amazon. The book seemed interesting, a medieval mystery about a boy in search of the Holy Grail in 12th century England, based on actual Arthurian legends and historical events.
If I wasn’t inclined to read the book before, I most certainly am inspired to now by the vehemence wrought in me over one reviewer’s comment:
“Typical female writing that bogs the reader down too much with scenery descriptions and a bit of a challenge for the young male mind.” [Linked here.]
