“You’re nobody’s doorway but your own, and the only one who gets to tell you how your story ends is you.”
Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children
Children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere… else.
But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children.
Nancy tumbled once, but now she’s back. The things she’s experienced… they change a person. The children under Miss West’s care understand all too well. And each of them is seeking a way back to their own fantasy world.
But Nancy’s arrival marks a change at the Home. There’s a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it’s up to Nancy and her new-found schoolmates to get to the heart of the matter.
No matter the cost.
Every Heart a Doorway is a story about children who have been in worlds similar to Narnia & Wonderland and how they are coping up when they get back to the real world.
I honestly find this intriguing the first time that I heard about this book in YouTube. I’ve expected something different when I dived in this book. Plot wise it is good, very good. However, the description of this book is not the real focus of the book. Yes the children have entered different worlds and most of them wanted to come back. But the stories revolve around something else which makes the book more intriguing.
I will not spoil what happened in this book because I want you to dived in this book knowing nothing. Also, disregard the fact that the settings is a school for children who came back to the real world from the fantasy world that we ourselves wish to be a part of because I think it is best to not have this prejudice if you are to read this book.
I have the same complain as other readers. I wish this book is longer. It’s short and very easy to read, the pacing is not bad. But the book is so short that some parts of the story that I wished the author delved differ were left untouched. But all in all, I love this book. Quite a good Halloween reads.
