Told in the first person viewpoint of a young elf girl, Ms. Tuttle masterfully draws you in. Together, with Avery, you walk through her daily life as she discovers what it is to really live and in the process discovers what it is to love and be loved.
A quiet story on a sub-level slowly rises to the surface, as Spark of Light speaks of humanity and our treatment of people, no matter who they are, no matter their status in life. Spark of Light also speaks deeply to the fact that we all need to love and be loved. The novel is masterfully told, but to have discovered the added depth, caused this reader to go back for a second reading so I could savor the fare.
A talented author can be schooled in the art of writing a book. But storytelling is a gift that cannot be learned, only sharpened and polished with practice. In my opinion, Elizabeth Tuttle has a gift of storytelling. It will be a delight to read the remaining chapters of this tale as they are published.
