Oake continues to charm me with her compelling stories. An Ogre's Tale kept me up at night as I did not want to stop reading it until it was done. The story dealt with life's changes, and how we choose our own fates. It was told in a style like a friend sitting down and relaying their days. It reminded me of old fairy tales. There aren't easy answers. But there is moral, and it is delivered with style.
This story has stunning imagery, suspense, and a beautifully woven in moral. Adults and children alike will enjoy the journey. Well Done Ms. Oake. May I have another?
