Even as adults, we thoroughly enjoyed this read. The story is well-paced, thoughtful and entertaining. The challenges and discoveries for both Maia and Martus speak to all generations. This will become a definite gift for younger generations in our family. Might we read more about Maia as she grows into her new identity? Let's hope so!

On one level the Silver Child is a fantastical story about a girl who turns out to be a prophesied savior. This girl, Maia, must face sacrifices and hardships and her own disbelief in herself. She is guided only by an elderly doctor named Martus, Gods she doesn't recognize, and those who worship her. On another level this book is a coming of age story for both that teenage girl and that doctor. The girl learns what it means to grow into herself, and the doctor learns to live meaningfully again years after the death of his wife. A story for any teenage girl looking to find her way, I think.
