by Gail Sidonie Sobat
"Sobat has woven a mesmerizing first novel. She knows, trusts, respects and challenges her intended audience, and offers a heroine with whom they can identify. Equally important, Ingamald is written by someone who loves and celebrates the English language. The words are carefully chosen and all are necessary. Sobat's description of a musical instrument could easily be written about her own prose - it is written with 'intricate and bouncing rhythms and masterful dexterous rumbles.'"
Merle Harris, storyteller and co-author of
Telling Tales: Storytelling in the Family
(Dragon Hill 1995)
"Ingamald is an invitation into a new world filled with adventure, romance and mystery. It is a story rich in imagination, lyrical in the telling, and surprising in intensity. In this book for all ages, Sobat takes us on a magical journey of discovery. She is a welcome new voice in Canadian fiction."
