Book 11 for 2012

I, Coriander by Sally Gardner. 293 pages.
Fairytale set between the English Civil war and the Restoration. Coriander Hobie lives with her devoted parents in London and is wonderfully happy. Until her mother dies suddenly and her father must marry a devout Puritan woman to avoid being suspected as a Royalist sympathiser…
I enjoyed this book. There's really not much substance to it, I suppose, but it's nicely written and the characters are sympathetic, if a little one-dimensional.
