"This wonderfully unique relationship story, containing more than a touch of magic, is an absolute joy of a read."
At its beautifully oh-so different heart, The Minuscule Mansion is a fabulously warming feel-good debut novel. After an accident as a child, Myra finds herself in possession of a hand-crafted miniature mansion, a rather bossy friend, and a reluctance to leave the safety of her attic sanctuary in Arizona. Debut author Audrey Burges has the most eloquent way with words, it feels as though she gathers you in for a reading hug. The mansion sits on the edge of a magical world, connected to an actual home, on the other side of the country. The story weaves through different time frames, creates links, seduces with magic, and looks at the strengths and weaknesses of different types of relationships. The magic realism of this story adds strength and vibrancy, I had absolutely no hesitation in falling headlong into this tale. Challenges are addressed, and death, grief, fear, and anxiety are explored with care and consideration. Chosen as a LoveReading Star Book and Liz Pick of the Month, The Minuscule Mansion of Myra Malone is a quirky and joy filled read we recommend with heart and soul.
