This book introduces us to the village of Wall, which unsurprisingly has a wall. On one side is the village, on the other side is a meadow, where the fairy market comes every x(can’t remember how many) years. On the day the market is there the villagers can go into the meadow. The rest of the time there are guards at the door to prevent villagers from going into the meadow where unknown dangers abound.

During one of these markets a child is conceived and put in a basket through the door and raised in the village. When he grows up he falls in love and leaves the village for the meadow beyond to find a fallen star for his lady love. The star is actually a woman, he captures her and intends to return to the village with her, but its not easy. He encounters obstacles and discovers that there are others who want the star, and not for benign reasons. There are all the creatures that we have come to expect from Neil Gaiman and a surprise, but not so surprise ending that does not disappoint.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
