Book overview

Review of June, 2009

Sometimes when I go to a favorite used bookstore and don't find anything I really want I feel a strong obligation to buy something anyway, which is how I came by this book, from The Title Page in Bryn Mawr PA, which I visited recently for the first time in many years.I was so delighted to find it was still in business.The woman who owns it seemed quite old to me 20 years ago — now she seems younger and livelier than I'd remembered.Clearly used book selling is a healthful enterprise.In any case, I decided to try this because I have fond memories of Rachel Field's Hitty, Her First Hundred Years.Judging by the illustrations this book seems to involve a young witch in training and is set in New York City, and I'm looking forward to reading it.

Later:
This book started out promisingly (it didn't hurt that it opened with a description of the Jefferson Market Tower in the snow — I love that building) , but unfortunately failed to hold its charm for me.The concept of a magical pawnshop is interesting in itself, but Field hardly developed the idea at all, and the magical details that at first seemed charmingly whimsical started to seem random and slapdash.The story concerns Prinda, a girl who sneaks out of her aunt and uncle's home one New Years Eve looking for a miracle to cure the uncle who is gravely ill.Prinda finds the pawnshop where the proprietor unexpectedly puts her in charge of the shop before going off on her broom to replenish the shop's store of magic that is running very low (how or where this is to be accomplished is not explained).Up to this point I was captivated, but then the story turned out to be about the rather uninteresting romances of people who come into the shop.The book has its moments (the shop has a resident maiden aunt who was pawned by her relatives who no longer had room for her in their apartment), but it's not one I'll be rereading.
