    A huge fan

    I love this book. Its the first that I ever read of Charles de Lint. I stumbled across it one book shopping day and I was attracted to the ladie on the cover. I can say I hated it when it ended. I fell in love with Jilly and all her friends. I have other Charles de Lint books, even one that my boyfriend got signed for me for my bday. Its awesome. I will read anything with Jilly in it. Well actually anything by him. If you want to really good book by him thats kinda mysterious get From a Whisper to a Scream. I think its under a fake name though. Look into it. Its great. De Lint work pumps me up.

    Excellent tale about Jilly Coppercorn. De Lint has crafted a captivating tale about one of his readers favorite characters. A moving and heartfelt book.

    A Must Read for Newford Lovers!

    The Onion Girl by Charles de Lint is my new favorite Newford novel, even though it's an older one. de Lint does a remarkable job explaining the origins of the character, Jilly Coppercorn, the beloved fae artist of his fictional town. As usual, de Lint blends world mythology into a modern tale seamlessly. I personally related to Jilly as the proverbial onion girl, as I am sure all of us can. We have all overcome painful obstacles throughout our lives. And it is how we deal with those challenges that shape our hearts and souls. Jilly Coppercorn has a beautiful soul, as do all her friends that live in Newford. If you love art, the fae, and a tale from the heart, this one is for you.

    Brave

    This book is brave. It is steeped in pain and sprinkled with magic. A great book for those who've endured a painful past. An enlightening book for those that haven't. My first read by Charles de Lint. I will be reading more.

    The Magic Within Us!

    A novel such as this is about me, you, and many others. As with many de Lint novels the journey between the mind and the heart is made. One not only thinks, one feels! It has come to the point that when I purchase a de Lint novel I also purchase a copy for my daughter and son. They are magical friends and appreciate urban fantasy of this caliber. In this age all too few books interleave the mundane world and the world that speaks to our spirits and manages to open our eyes. The poem says, "View the world with eyes joined to the heart, heroes and angels appear." Thanks are due to de Lint for the ability to portray this with such a rich tapestry.
